Nina Lyons was born in Saskatchewan, Canada and emigrated to the United States settling in the San Francisco Bay Area. She grew up surrounded by the artwork of her parents. She received her Master of Fine Arts from the California College of Arts and Crafts where she was fortunate to have studied with Viola Frey.

Lyons' work, with its unpretentious spontaneity, is at the same time insightful, contemplative and focused. Recurrent images of chairs, vessels, ladders, houses, boats, archetypal animals and the female form unite her works on paper with her sculpture. Her drawings and paintings utilize the subtleties of earth tones, and when executed on her sculpture, they add a richly expressive textural quality.

Her work has been shown throughout the greater Bay Area in numerous exhibitions including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Artists Gallery, Sculpturesite Gallery, A New Leaf Gallery, the Oakland Museum Collector's Gallery, and the Benicia Art Center.

Nina Lyons' sculptures in Bronze, Clay and Hand-Cast Glass, as well as her Paintings, can be found in private collections and commissions throughout the United States.
