Being an artist, she had also enhanced her skills in painting wherein she launched her first solo painting exhibition entitled “Limited Seats Only,” the concept of which was a sort of invitation to guess what kind of subject would be sitting in each seat, and how the subject would treat the seat. Nina expressed her love of painting when she was just four years old and started scribbling images on the papers. She inherited this talent from her father who was also an artist and her mentor. He serves as her inspiration up to this very day, and desires to continue and fulfill his unrealized dream to be a painter.
Today, despite a mother of three boys and a loving wife to Michael, she still finds time to take care of herself and maintain that rockin-body she is proud of. That was already some 12 years ago, but her figure remained the same even after giving birth. Exercise and diet are some of the important things she points out. And besides, being a celebrity in her own right, it is necessary to always be fit and looking good. Nina is much a career woman but she and Michael had a vow to prioritize their family whatever it takes. A contented and fulfilled woman, Nina is a picture of a happy mother and wife.
