Nancy earned an AA in studio art from El Camino College in Torrance, Ca., and a BA in computer video imaging from Cogswell College in Sunnyvale, Ca., graduating valedictorian. She went into the web design and user experience research field while continuing her artistic practice.
She has taught watercolor still life, figure painting and her abstract technique and other forms of expression at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto, Ca, at many art leagues in California and Illinois, and to those affected by cancer through Living Proof Exhibit at the NASIF Cancer Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She currently teaches art privately.
Nancy loves teaching her abstract techniques especially to the realist artist to help them break out of being too caught up in details and get frustrated when a painting doesn’t come out perfect. "In this style of painting, it's all about letting go and seeing what the muses have in mind. They have their own version of perfection.” -Nancy
Recently relocating to St. Louis, Missouri, she's fallen in love with the town; its architecture, its people and its great community pride. Here she bought herself a brick gingerbread house in the city and moved her art practice into a newly remodeled studio which was once a furniture factory.
Nancy's art work is in collections in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
