Nina's story

by Talent Gallery owner, Nina King

I have been described as ‘The Artist who saved the Talent Gallery from closing down’. I did this because I became overwhelmed by a feeling that I should take it on. The feeling was so strong that I couldn’t even finish my lunch! I almost sprinted there to see Nico (the previous gallery owner) to find out if he had had any offers to take it on.

 

Luckily, here I am a few months later, and all is going to plan (well, a loose, make-it-up-as-you-go-along type of plan)!

I have been excited and terrified – sometimes both at the same time. I have never run a gallery before (and had never considered it even), and I have only been painting for 6 years. Talent Gallery is the only gallery I have ever exhibited in. I haven’t been to art college, I don’t know anything about art history- but I do love art, and I am willing to learn if I need to.

With a bit of thought, some YouTube videos, and lots of help from my family, fellow artists and Nico himself, my ideas are really taking shape. I feel happy and excited about having this amazing opportunity and hopefully we will all have a successful happy ever after story.

Thanks so much for all of your support. I look forward to seeing you all at the new Talent Gallery. Nina x
