Graduating with an M.S. in Speech Pathology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Nancy has held several positions in hospitals, Home Care and the Education field in Ontario. After working in a variety of clinical settings she left this field to pursue a Fine Art Degree at the University of Guelph. Graduating in 1993, she began her work in ceramic sculpture, drawing and painting. A love of learning prompted Nancy to continue her art studies through numerous workshops in Canada and the United States, studying with Peter Kolsnyk, Steve Rose and John Leonard in Canada and Steve Aimone and Nick Wilton in the US. Working in sculpture, painting and mixed media, she has participated in the Toronto Outdoor Exhibition and Indoor Expos as well as over 100 solo, group and juried exhibitions.
This award-winning artist has always been intrigued with the endless potential of landscape and non-objective painting. This form of expression challenges her with an unparalleled means of conveying emotion and mood often through the use of strong colour and intuitive marks.
Her paintings begin by applying random lines and shapes onto canvas or paper. These marks often come from a feeling or recollection of landscape. Personal symbols are often included as imagery evolves. Each drip, run and tool mark play a role in the outcome, creating a constant flow of problem solving. The process continues until balance or a feeling of resolution is achieved. Nancy delights in producing paintings for the viewer that are both compelling and revealing.
Nancy’s work can be found in many collections in Europe, the US and Canada. She has images published in “Alternative Kilns and Firing”, “100 Figures” and “Expressive Drawing” all published by Lark Books.
