Artist Bio: Nancy finished her Honours Fine Art Degree from the University of Guelph in 1993. Additionally she studied with Peter Kolsnyk and John Leonard in Canada, and Steve Aimone and Nicholas Wilton in the US. She has had 22 1-2 person shows, participated in 47 juried and 73 group exhibitions, won 34 awards. Published in ‘Expressive Painting’ by Lark Books.
Nancy has always been intrigued with exploring the endless potential of abstract and non-objective painting with a special interest in landscape. She is not interested in sublime depiction but in memories and intuition of a changing land. For her, process is paramount, with layers of marks and colours reflecting the unknown and unseen.
