About the Instructor | Nina Eve Zeininger

Nina Eve Zeininger has been obsessed with books since before she could read when she received Harold and the Purple Crayon as a child. While earning her BFA in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute, she took as many book and printmaking classes as possible and after graduating completed the Bookbinding Certificate program at the San Francisco Center for the Book. She now spends her time teaching book arts workshops throughout California, making and selling her printed and bookish wares, and playing fetch with her cats. You can view her work on her website and at her Etsy store neon sprinkles studio and follow her activities on her blog: Things I Make and Find.
