Nancy was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. She moved to the Okanagan in 1974. She brought with her a love for this wonderful large and open space. This energy and drama from her early experiences is reflected in her painting genres today.
Nancy studied at Okanagan College and got additional training from professional artists when she was accepted into active status with the Federation of Canadian Artists. Her style has evolved to create paintings which are unique and reflect her independent personality and values. As a result she has received many awards in juried exhibitions.
Nancy's painting genres are as interesting and varied as her travels. Trips to Asia, Europe and the cities of Hong Kong, London, Paris and New York each provide new scenes and experiences that show in her art from the enrichment she gains. The genres range from vibrant grassland studies to impressionistic and contemporary florals. Her palette can be warm sunny earth tones changing to dramatic edgy pure pigments of bright red and blue when a different mood or effect demands it. She is strong and bold in her approach and her work stands out.
Nancy's work has been collected by corporations such as Sask Power. Her art has been purchased by contemporary restaurants such as Restaurant of the Year "The Crushed Grape", Four Diamond Restaurant “Fresco” and used by movie production companies such as Just Friends Productions in the movie "Just Friends" and a Mary Higgins Clark made-for-TV movie.
Nancy continues to broaden her horizons with travel and paints images that show the content and emotions from her experiences.
