Operating most of her career from a gallery in Victoria, British Columbia, Nita Forrest was a painter, largely self taught although she studied with Herbert Siebner, and was influenced by  she Richard Ciccimarra and Maxwell Bates.

She operated the Print Gallery in Victoria from 1968 to 1972, and in this capacity proviced a venue for exhibitions by contemporary artists including Jack Shadbolt, Tony Onley, Michael Morris, Donald Harvey, and many other Victoria artists.

"Forrest was one of the original members of The Limners group, a social association for Victoria artists including Maxwell Bates and Richard Ciccimarra.  In 1981 her work was selected to represent Victoria in an exhibition which toured China, and in 1983 she was named an Honorary Citizen of Victoria.
