Biography Growing up on the prairie, only 40 miles from the mountains, the wide open spaces appealed to the artist within. The native flora and fauna have always been an inspiration. Nancy was employed as a draftsman in the oil patch for several years and on retiring from the workplace, she returned to a love of drawing and painting. After a brief encounter with painting on porcelain, she switched to watercolour and oil painting, later discovering pastel. Her work shows a good knowledge of botany and a love of nature in general. 'Variety is the spice of life' would easily describe her subject matter, portrayed in a realistic style. Paintings are often begun on site, capturing the moment with sketches, paintings, or photography. Other mediums are continually being explored, including printmaking. These efforts include etchings, monotype and Moku Hanga (the traditional Japanese woodcut using water based pigments). She has exhibited regularly in juried shows since 1987. Things that appeal to her personally are painted with the intent to convey that appeal to the viewer. Although the painting may take the viewer to a different time or place, the painting conveys its own message and ultimately speaks for itself. A favourite quote: "One of the best things about paintings is their silence, which prompts reflection and random reverie." (Mark Stevens)   (See additional information below.)
