Nancy’s preferred medium is oils on linen boards. Her interest in plein air painting has evolved over the past seven years, transitioning from the detail of realism to plein air providing the perfect vehicle for expressing her love of the outdoors and awareness of nature.

As a plein air painter, Nancy is more than fortunate to have the 24,000-acre Pretty Boy Watershed in her backyard where she enjoys disappearing for hours with her easel, backpack, and of course her dog Luna.

While in her backyard, Nancy will paint a beaver pond, a strand of trees in the winter, or even a rushing stream in the spring. Her work is successful because of her interpretation of the ever-changing natural surroundings, her use of lush colors, and the freedom of brushwork and pallet knife.

Nancy says that from time to time there may be a passerby who may observe her doing art and want to buy her paintings!
