In 1997 Nina painted her first commission for playwright and comedian Pieter-Dirk Uys. Since then she has had lots of fun capturing his alter-ego, tannie Evita Bezuidenhout, in the styles of the Great Masters. In March 2010 the ‘Evita-paintings’ were on exhibition at the Sasol Art Museum in Stellenbosch as part of the Stellenbosch University Word Festival. By the end of 2012 there were 27 paintings! The paintings can be seen in the crafts-building at Evita se Perron in Darling or go to www.evita.co.za, photo galleries, Tannie Evita’s Master Collection.
