Nina Helms is a sculptural illustrator. With her hands, she brings to life a three-dimensional story, re-creating a moment in time through a mix of plaster and emotion.
Nina's unique talent of capturing the subtle details and textures of the natural form is captivating. Her imaginative works, whether embracing a large public space or accenting the walls of a private home, capture the beauty within our surrounding world. Her sculptures are at times breathtaking, at other times energizing, and often times they are both.
Nina's work draws inspiration from the traditional European wall relief sculptures she first discovered while staying at a chateau in the Loire Valley of France. Her modern take on the classical medium finds its unique voice in theme, design and in the materials from which it is created.
Developing her own variations of plasters, Nina's bas-reliefs are more pliable and durable than any before. Today Nina has the freedom to turn walls into canvases and her clients' visual dreams into enchanting realities. Her unique viewpoint and talent results in creations that are timeless in spirit, luxurious in appeal; a feast for the eyes and the soul.
