Noferin is the collaboration of two parallel minds: that of Candy and Nicho.
Trained as a Graphic Designer – BDes (VisComm); BvisComm (First Class Hons) – Candy possesses an acute understanding of solid design principles. She brings these skills into her paintings; a medium that she finds to be more expressive and free.
Studying an Environmental Science degree, Nicho spends every spare moment developing the world of Noferin in a literary sense and through wooden sculpture.
Together, they delve into the whimsical world of Carrara Island and its inhabitants – meshing the fine art, design and literary worlds together in a complete and unique package.
The world of Noferin is populated by lustrous imagery in the form of acrylic painting on wood, illustration, stories and three-dimensional wooden sculptural pieces. Much inspiration comes from the natural environment. The ocean, islands, trees, exotic plants, the weather and certain unseen elements of the natural environment feature heavily in Noferin’s work.
