Nina Vangerow

Artist, Performance Art, Teacher, Book Lover


my name is Nina Vangerow and I'm an artist teacher and online content creator and live in a small town in rural Wales, UK with my teenage son, our little rescue terrier Mimi and a slightly mad Welsh Cob.

Under the name of The Forgotten Bookshop Girl I'm working as a mixed media artist, rebind old books turning them into notebooks, create vintage style Travelers Notebook inserts, work with various forms of image transfers and love working with materials that would normally have ended up in the landfill or is just looking for a new lease of life.

 I have always loved anything vintage (I've got an MA in Ancient History) and am more of an analogue person, though I do love the internet and how it opens up the world to us. 

Most of my work has definitely a vintage feel or twist, and I'm also very much influenced by the Dada movement, well, the 20's are probably my favourite era.
