Nina Eve Zeininger is only truly happy when making art and helping others to be creative. Born and raised in New England, she now lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
While earning her BFA in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute, she took as many book and printmaking classes as possible and has been taking pictures, making books, and printing ever since. Her work has been shown nationally and she can be found at local craft fairs selling her printed and bookish wares under the guise of neon sprinkles studio. A lover of words, books, letters, and grammar; Nina Eve's work is infused with nature, bright colors, fun, and sarcasm. Day-to-day she spends her time teaching letterpress and book arts, making art, working in non-profit arts management, crafting yummy food and tasty cocktails, reading, and playing fetch with her cats.
I approached this year's sketchbook a bit like a photo book, a bit like Instagram, and a bit like a journal. My 2018 sketchbook is full of food images shot on my iPhone using various Hipstamatic lenses and films. I know, how 'millennial' and, 'who cares about what you ate?' But if the old adage 'you are what you eat' is true, why not care? In a world full of bad things, health crises, and also health food crazes, we probably should care more about what goes into our body. Eating is an event and I like having a record of these events. As I sorted through the images to include in this sketchbook, I could recall how something tasted, how good a drink was, where the food was from, or what occasion brought me to that place without needing to check the metadata attached to the image. Food is an experience and so I photograph it to remember it and share it, like so many other experiences in life.
