Biography


Nanci's love of the natural world began as a child when during family camping trips, her father would point out the beauty in nature. The evening light on the mountains, reflections in a stream, a patch of wildflowers. When she started to paint as a child, nature was her chosen subject. Today her work is still influenced by those childhood experiences. 
 
“I paint plein aire whenever possible. Being out on location gives me an opportunity to see the nuances of color and light and gives me the connection with nature that I love. I am always amazed by the play of light on the colors, textures, and shapes of simple things we pass by every day and never notice“.
 
 Nanci has started painting in oil after working exclusively in watercolor for 25 years.  Nanci was one of 40 artists chosen in an international juried competition to participate in a master’s class with Canadian artist Robert Bateman.  She has studied with Richard McKinley and has been in a mentor program with Albert Handell.  She has had over 30 one person shows and won numerous awards.  Her  paintings are in private, public and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada and Europe
 
 “Painting allows me to express my view of the natural world in my own style with my chosen medium. My hope is that people view my paintings and take away their own appreciation of the beauty in nature, simple things they pass by everyday and never notice“.
