Nadia Fairlamb

resin painter

Nadia, a wood sculptor and illustrator, grew up in Europe surrounded by historic and pre-historic art

sights. She spent her childhood constantly drawing and painting, playing in castles and wandering the

Louvre.

Her formal art training began in junior high, and she continued this training earning a BFA in sculptural

ceramics and archaeology while living in Texas. During her time in college, she worked as an onsite

illustrator of artifacts on archaeology digs in New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and Central America. After

receiving her degree, she continued to work as a technical illustrator and worked for a stained-glass

window manufacturer making windows for churches and homes.

Nadia's current body of work is influenced by living in Hawaii, by the rhythms of nature and native

cultural designs. The rhythmic movement of ocean currents, tides, waves dominate in her sculptures.

Her complex and multi layered sculptures start with local tropical hardwoods, then are inlaid with

mirror, glass, iridescent waxes, metallic foils, paint, and resins. Primarily large-scale wall art, several of

her designs have been turned into table surfaces, decorative screens, and other merchandise.

 

Her art is sold at local Hawaii art sales events, through art dealers, interior designers, and local and

online art galleries. She is committed to making sure others learn art through her fine art classes for

children and creativity courses for adults which are online. She loves reminding others of who they truly

are through art and creativity.
