Danhui Nai, Chinese painter, was born and raised in mainland China. As the child of a sculptor and a painter it is no small wonder that she showed an interest in art at an early age. After college, Danhui Nai moved to New York City where she worked as a textile designer. She studied at the Fashion institute of Technology at night and also took a summer course in French costume and interior design in Paris. She has a flower garden outside her studio and loves to paint in the garden when weather permits. Her antique roses and other flowers are among her favorite subjects.
