Nancy began oil painting at an early age and later studied art at Arizona State University, the Scottsdale Artists’ School, and privately with several American artists. In 2012, Nancy left her career in graphic design and marketing to pursue painting full time. Her paintings have rapidly become popular due to their unique style. Honest and non-pretentious, they expose the beauty of nature through the combination of light and shadow and serendipitous plays of color. Nancy’s paintings are held in corporate and private collections in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Hungary, Italy, and Russia. Her hobbies include hiking and tree farming. She is a board member of Plein Air Washington Artists and Puget Sound Group of NW Artists.
I have always been intrigued by designs of nature: the line of a tree, the patterns of light and shadow, these mysterious designs create moods and become the source of my inspiration. My goal is to capture on canvas and interpret both nature’s grandeur and its subtleties. I love the process of starting with nothing and creating something uniquely beautiful and honest. I paint landscapes and explore the quiet essence of being in nature. My chosen medium is oil, with variety of brushwork, thick and thin, loose and detailed. It gives me the opportunity to portray the breadth and scale of nature. Our Douglas fir tree farm in western Washington, an idyllic forest property, is the main source of visual nourishment for me. This is where new ideas for paintings are often born. firstname.lastname@example.org
