To Paint the Nude:
The Challenge and the Obsession

Mina is a professional artist who specializes in the challenging medium of watercolor. And she prefers the equally challenging subject, the nude, because of the complexity of human anatomy.

“I discipline myself to truly use my eyes and mind to see the innumerable changes in light and color on the life model. These intense observations are then transformed into my distinctive and sensitive expression of both male and female. I consider my paintings to be a real portrayal of the most beautiful form in nature: The Nude.”

In addition to Mina’s careers in art and art education, she is a founding member of the Philadelphia Area Plein Air Painters formerly know as Urban Painting Partners of Philadelphia.
