NINA Q. ALLEN IS A MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTIST WHO USES THE LANGUAGE OF THE OCEAN TO SYMBOLIZE MATRILINEAL HEALING (DIVINATION) AND AFROFUTURISM. HER WORK USES MOON WATER, SCIENCE, AND COLOR TO SYMBOLIZE GROWTH, REBIRTH, & ANCESTRAL MAGIC IN TWO CHANNELED (PHYSICAL EXISTENCE VS. SPIRITUAL PRESENCE) REALMS.

THE INTERIOR/EXTERIOR OF THE WOMAN'S ANATOMY IS ESSENTIAL TO CLEANSE AURAS OF THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE.

AMETHYST (BIRTHSTONE) ACTS AS THE CENTER TO HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS (MEDITATION) IN STUDIES. PROPERTIES: SPIRITUAL INSIGHT, UNLOCKS INTUITION AND ENHANCES THE CROWN CHAKRA.
