A graduate of Mount Holyoke College and Rhode Island School of Design, Nina Jerome has been painting landscape in Maine since she moved to Bangor in 1975. She spends summers in Addison, Maine where the undeveloped coastal landscape has captured her spirit. Concentrated light, panoramic rhythms, varied points of view and active brush strokes convey her interest in unique qualities of place in both natural and constructed environments.
Jerome exhibits throughout Maine, and her work has been shown in many regional and national juried exhibits. Her paintings have been selected for fourteen public art projects through the Maine Arts Commission Percent for Art Program, among them six large-scale triptychs installed at courtroom entrances in the Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor. She has has taught workshops at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Monson Arts, and is retired from the University of Maine where she taught drawing and painting.
