Nin Sarduy life and art

Nin Sarduy is a Cuban American who came to the United States legally in 1967 via the “Freedom Flights” at the age of 15. Since her arrival, she has lived in Iowa and California, eventually settling in the State of Florida, where she had the pleasure and honor of working as a teacher of the Fine Arts for thirty-eight years.

Nin now resides in Northwest North Carolina, surrounded by the natural wonders of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where she was mesmerized by the glistening of the light reflecting on the trees at wintertime, and the black rocks as they jut out from the rivers remind Irene of her childhood at her Father’s land, where the river Pontezuela ran through.

About her art

Nin enjoys working with mixed media - from the rhythm of the potter’s wheel and sculptural nature of clay to the variety of inks and paints that create texture and movement on paper. The swirls of earthly colors seem timeless almost like an ancient calling.

Nin’s work is a story of a memory and passing of time.  Her work can be abstract or, at times, subjective.  The ambition of creating an atmosphere seems to always be present.  The beauty and attraction of the mountains, trees, rocks and nature, during the changing of seasons, eloquently captures the imagination and evokes feelings of quiet, peace, contentment and joy.  Read More...
