Nancy is a second generation artist, spending her early years in Boston and summers on Cape Cod. After college, she sought to enhance her early love of art by studying at the Scottsdale Artist School, California Coast College, Laguna Art Institute, Fredericksburg Artist School, and Laguna Art Workshops. She has also pursued direct study under Master Chinese artist ShuQiao Zhou and noted landscape painter, Morgan Samuel Price. She has been acknowledged for her direct, rich, expressive style by both her art clients as well as juried representation in exhibitions with the Oil Painters of America, The California Art Club, American Women Artists, the Laguna Beach Plein Air Painters and the Southern California Plein Air Painters Association.
 
Artist Statement
 
Nancy paints still life, landscapes and figure. “No artist could live in California and not become enchanted with painting in natural light and from life” says Nancy. Painting in a direct post-impressionist Russian style of realism, where strong expression of form is critical, she has developed a definitive style of painting from life that is evident in all of her works.
