"Nancy Angelini Crawford is an Alaska resident artist.  She paints plein air and from life as often as possible.  Her subject matter can vary widely as she loves to paint what moves her with the hope that the viewer is moved as well.  Her style of work has been coined as "emotional realism".  She has shown her work, studied and taught worldwide winning various awards.

After residing in Wasilla, Alaska for over 30 years, her children raised, she began taking local watercolor classes and then moved on to studying under contemporary masters such as Kevin McPherson, David Gallup, Dean Larson and others.  Without a formal education Nancy continues to travel and take workshops to always push to take her art to the next level.

No matter what the medium, (watercolor, pastel or oil) her goal is to know the techniques well,
apply them, and then embellish with her own style.
