Q & A with the ASA

ASA: Can you tell us about your influences?

Nadien: Even though I love to paint the Alberta landscape, especially the mountains, I would say what influences
my work most is travel to other countries and across Canada.

ASA: What would you consider your most successful body of work to date?

Nadien: My most successful body of work in terms of recognition would be my Costa Rica series. (images shown in
