Nakano was born on July 4,1925 in Sacramento, of Japanese parents. When she was in high school in 1939, the United States entered World War II. Her family was placed in an internment camp for three years. Even at this young age, her occupation was listed in camp records as artist, sculptor and teacher of art. Then from 1947 -1951, she attended the California School of Fine Arts (now known as San Francisco Art Institute) where she studied with Clifford Still, Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischoff. Beginning in the 1950's her work often consisted of landscapes composed of abstracted geometric forms, thus classifying her as an Abstract Expressionist.
