Meet Nina Joy Rizzo
Nina Joy was a child of serendipity; raised in Queens, New York with crayons, pencils, water paints, brushes and chalk as her companions, she took advantage of the variety of background media that presented itself everyday- from sketch pads to sidewalks to gnarly branches and leather, the budding artist literally made her mark in and on the competitive streets of New York. In her words, “Coloring, outlining images and drawing patterns were a regular activity. I spied and claimed smooth sidewalks, and the fence in my aunt’s back yard didn’t go unscathed either!”
By the time her family moved to Palm Springs, California in her pre-teen years, Nina was on the road to searching for a focal point for her artistic interests. Eventually she was drawn into the world of Fractal Art, where imagination, color and geometric design collide. With the aid of a computer, her first mandalas and fractal shapes were ready for production, and two years later she moved to the Sedona area in 2009, bringing her passion for Fractal Art with her.
Loving my Own Art
People often ask what my favorite pieces from my own collection are, and although I love all of my work there are three pieces that really stand out in my mind. Each piece has been inspired by something special and unique.
