Artist profile

Nancy’s contemporary, colourful paintings exude optimism. Exhibiting since 2019, her first year has brought her in to contact with a Hollywood legend and she exhibited alongside 5 Turner Prize winners.

She says:

"My first year of exhibiting has far exceeded my dreams - my paintings now hang in galleries across the UK and people across the world have found pieces they love and have bought through Facebook and Instagram. I was invited to exhibit alongside some of the UK's most accomplished artists including 3 of my personal art heroes Antony Gormley, Grayson Perry and Maggie Hamling as part of the RWA's Secret Postcard Auction. I was delighted that my little painting held it's own and attracted animated bidding. It's been a wonderful first year!"

Nancy understands that buying original art is a personal and hopefully enjoyable process.  "I get immense joy from attending galleries and exhibitions and by engaging directly with art and artists so I welcome direct contact with interested buyers to help you find the right piece for your home and budget."

“When working on each still life, I aim to capture an essence rather than a literal interpretation of the subject. With a dandelion, for instance, I make my own palette knives to capture their distinctive needle-like petals.”

Nancy also paints interpretative seascapes, landscapes and abstract works, usually working is acrylics but with some collage and mixed media. The common thread in her subject matter is a love of nature inspired by frequent trips around south west England.

Nancy began her artistic endeavour at an early age, but academic studies took over and she worked in the charity sector for 30 years before deciding to devote more time to painting.  

Despite only beginning to exhibit in June 2019, her paintings have received wide appreciation and now hang in homes and offices as far afield as New York and Jerusalem and can be viewed in galleries across the UK including:

Darryl Nantais Gallery, Linton, Cambridgeshire

Hadfield Fine Art, Severnhampton (the Cotswolds), Gloucestershire

Hatch Gallery, Christchurch, Dorset

DNG Gallery, Aucterader, Scotland
