Nina Earley was born in 1984 in Basel, Switzerland. She received her BA in International Relations, Economics, and Fine Art from Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, Canada in 2008, and her MFA in Visual Arts from Lesley University College of Art and Design (formerly Art Institute of Boston) in June of 2014. She creates work that exists in between different media, utilizing aspects of drawing, painting, sewing, and photography. By making use of memories of places she knows well, she creates abstracted maps that allow the viewer to dwell in a space of remembering. The lines are drawn from walks that now exist only in her memory; one can never find his or her place in them. Most recently she was the first Artist-In-Residence at The Umbrella Community Arts Center in Concord, MA and now continues her studio practice in the Boston area.
