Nina Eaton


Nina Eaton is a painter, art educator and muralist. She studied painting, graphic arts and performance at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Minneapolis College of Art and Design where she completed her BA. She worked as a set designer and muralist until she moved to Italy in 1989, where she created murals and trompe l’oeil for such notable residences as Villa Taverna (US ambassador) and Palazzo Chigi (Italian PM) in Rome.
