Inspired as an adolescent by the writings of Uslar Pierti´s ¨Knowledge of Art¨, ¨Invisible Friends¨ and by the emerging kinetic artists, Ninoska developed a profound attraction and passion for the arts.

She graduated in the 70´s as an Interior Designer in the Iles Academy in Caracas, Venezuela, later pursuing studies in Art at the Universidad Central de Venezuela. Soon after, she moved to Paris for a brief period, where she immersed herself in acquiring more knowledge in the arts at the Louvre while meeting numerous artists that would later influence her coming years.

By 1994 Ninoska returns to Venezuela and opens her own gallery supporting upcoming artists of the time, such as Karim Borjas, Victor Valera and Oscar Zañartu. This venture opened new opportunities and established lifetime bonds with the artists she represents to this day.

In 1998, Ninoska founds and directs the Sala Deltaven, a subsidiary of PDVSA in Caracas, Venezuela. After 12 years having not participated in exhibits, she was able to convince Jesús Soto to be the inauguration exhibit for this new art center. That same year, both Carlos Cruz-Diez and Victor Valera also held exhibits in the Center, thus becoming a recognized cultural center for the arts.

However, 1999 with the change in government, Deltaven closed its offices including the Art Center.

During the year 2000, Ninoska publishes as Editor her book titled, “Soto y la Escritura / Soto and the Scripture” in which Soto fuses his art with poetry excerpts from Uslar Piertri´s ¨Multiple de la Escritura¨, as homage to both intellectuals.

The book was published and presented in Caracas, celebrating the aperture of telecommunications for Telcel. In May 2001, the book ¨ was presented in Paris at the Maison de L’Amérique Latine. The book was presented with 25 works of art produced in Caracas and 25 produced in Paris, accompanied with each one´s poem of Arturo Uslar Pietri.
