Nina Carroll (1932-1990)
Paintings by Nina Carroll can be found hanging on many private house walls in Northamptonshire.
A Kettering and Oxford artist, Nina painted daily for many years, producing a large output of watercolour and gouache works. Her distinctive use of colour, especially greens, with her drawing always done in pen and black ink, produced an additional interest to her paintings which grows on the observer.
She held many exhibitions in Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire and London and several in other parts of the country and even abroad; she exhibited work at the Royal Academy, New English Art Club, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Royal Institute of Water Colours and the Royal West of England Academy. While a large proportion of her work consists of vibrant landscape watercolours, she also painted a wide variety of other subjects, her creative imagination inspired by the world around her.
