To create and to be in balance

Welcome to Nancy's art


Nancy’s life-long connection with nature’s beauty is evidenced by the colors, textures, and composition she brings to her work.

“I believe art stimulates curiosity and thought and allows us to connect, consciously or subconsciously, with our emotions and memories.” Nancy explains.
