Thank you for joining me on my joyful art journey
I'm in my happy place when surrounded by creative people, bright colors, and beautiful things to look at with a paint brush in my hand.
I've always had a curiosity for the world around me. I'm especially drawn to the color and details of flowers. I'm amazed at how perfect God has created them and how their design is reflected in the man made world in shapes, color and texture.
It's my desire to bring this beauty to my collectors for them to experience the same joy I feel when I'm painting.
Art is my voice when my surroundings speak and you are the listener. When I paint, I hope my art speaks to you in the way the world speaks to me.
Nancy has a BS in Industrial Arts Education from the State University College at Buffalo where she explored many creative mediums, including drawing, painting, graphic design, woodworking, metals, and plastic. She has a minor in architectural drafting and design.
After teaching for 2 years, her position was eliminated and she took a job with IBM that spanned 35 years. During her career, she traveled to over 50 different countries allowing her to explore cultures, architectural beauty, and art. These experiences have shaped her artistic view.
Now retired and painting full time, Nancy shares her passion with others through volunteering, teaching art workshops and providing one-on-one instruction in oil painting. Nancy was elected to the Board of Directors with The Sonoran Arts League in December 2020 for a three-year term.
Nancy's painting knowledge has been shaped by current master artists, Nancy Medina, Daniel Keys, and many others from numerous workshops at the Scottsdale Artists' School.
