Studio Visit with Texas A

Since her retirement she has taken art workshops in Europe, Mexico and the United States in watercolor, acrylic, oil, plein air and collage. Her personal work has evolved to acrylic semi-abstract figurative painting and mixed media paintings with torn paper collage. Nancy uses found papers, magazine pages and hand painted and stamped papers in the collage paintings. She has recently added landscape pieces while painting plein air in New Mexico and California. In January 2012 she traveled to California to take her first oil workshop. Her focus is on bright colors and impressionist techniques in her paintings seen on her blog and website. She is an internationally collected artist and has recently had 3 of her works published in Painting with Mixed Media, Guhin and Greenman, @2012. Nancy’s paintings can be viewed and purchased at her online gallery: Daily Paintworks, http://dailypaintworks.com

Nancy paints with a group of 8 artists who paint collaboratively, Canvas by Canvas. Inspiration comes from a library of art books, viewing other artists’ work, painting with friends, art workshops, museums, travel, photos – all that she sees and experiences is a potential for a painting or a journal entry.
