My home and sculptures featured in the North Pinellas Times

My home is being included in a holiday tour through decorated homes.
Featured in the tour through my home will be my sculptures, especially my various angel sculptures.
Here's what they said about me in the article:

"The home and studio of Nina Winters features her works of art and some artifacts from her trips to Africa and South America."

Visit links.tampabay.com to see the slideshow of the homes.


This week I wanted to share a bit about my piece, "Before Time". He is cast in bronze and patinaed with deep, rich colors. He comes on a base of custom stainless steel. Dragons are my guardians. This is the first dragon – out in space. Before space. Before time. Becoming from his own thoughts. Growing his own universe. He is All. He is Nothing. He is eternal. He is before eternity. He IS.

I have posted about these pieces, but I wanted to celebrate with you that I sold both of these sculptures within the past week! The one who Learned to fly is a sculpture dedicated to my daughter. The message is that we can all learn to fly, spiritually, physically or emotionally. The Galactic Samurai is a piece dedicated to a very well known figure who has done far more than most, and to all the beings that reach out across space and time to fight for what they believe in.

African Queen

Sculpture of the week 11.16.11

This week I wanted to post something about my piece, "African Queen". I traveled with my daughter to Africa for three months. One country we visited was Mali,one of the poorest countries in the world. I met a man who lived in a one-bedroom house with his family of 35 people. Most people cook, eat, work, socialize and sleep on the street. Every day I would sketch and make notes. This sculpture is from a sketch of a woman who, although she was extremely poor, carried herself like a queen.

Wearable Sculptures

My new line of Wearable Sculptures (jewelry) are created in bronze just as my large pieces. A percentage of the profit goes to help fund a new project I am working on with inner city children to help them create their own Monumental Children's Sculpture Peace Parks promoting that a drug-free individual, home, community and planet will help create a more peaceful world. Here are a few of the pieces from the collection:

To see all of the Wearable Sculptures, purchase for the Holiday season, and do your part to help promote a drug-free and more peaceful world, please visit:



This week, I wanted to give you insight into the inspiration behind my sculpture, "A Love Poem". The young couple is newly in love. She wears a gold crown as a symbol of her being the queen of this day. Cast in bronze and patinaed with rich colors, it is the perfect gift for a wedding or anniversary. The beautiful love poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning is hand-engraved and can be chosen in any two languages - "I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you."
