As I kayak the marsh, walk the beach and look at the sky, I find inspiration for my paintings.
A graduate of NC State’s College of Design, Nancy was a graphic designer for many years before becoming a full time artist. A North Carolina native, she splits her time between her home in Cary and waterway condo at Sunset Beach, NC, near her hometown Tabor City. Her love of nature, especially the coast, inspires Nancy to paint. Featured in her oil paintings are rare, unspoiled vistas of deserted beaches, tranquil marshes, colorful seas and vast skies. Working from observation, memory and imagination. Nancy explores color, light, shapes and forms to create her contemporary landscapes. And though derived from familiar places, her paintings are not of a specific location but an impression of everyday nature — where the colors of sky, earth and water converge on the horizon.
