Located in Seattle's Historic Pike Place Market
Nancy is a Seattle artist, having lived in the area over 25 years. An enthusiastic supporter of the Pacific Northwest and Puget Sound, she enjoys a studio and home on the ship canal in Fremont, amidst tugboats and crab pots.
While studying with Russian Impressionistic style artists Henry Stinson, Deanne Lemley and figurative artist Barbara Fugate, Nancy has developed a powerful artistic style with emphasis on dramatic color.
Through her fresh vision, she captures an ordinary moment in an unusual way.
Artist statement: "I have always been drawn to common household objects with a sense of time-worn character - a broken teacup, dinnerware from the 1940s, my grandmother's toaster. Local historical icons like the Hat N' Boots gas station of the 1950s fits right into this theme. Portraying these objects with a sense of cozy intimacy and an element of surprise is important to me. Additionally, eldercare is a topic of great concern to me, so my paintings also often address social and economic issues dealing with the elderly."

Art Stall Gallery - my paintings will always be on display at this wonderful little co-op gallery of 14 local artists. Although I may not have a solo exhibit here in 2012, my new paintings will always be on display. I'll be there 2-3 times a month, so if you want to visit, call and find out the days I work. I would love to see you.
July 2011 Exhibit "Seattle Icons" - this exhibit of my newest small oil paintings featuring my favorite Seattle icons included the Hat n Boots, Pink Elephant Car Wash, Pink Toe Truck, Daily Dozen Donuts, and of course the Pike Place Market.Thank you friends and customers for a successful exhibit -- I appreciate you!
I also continue to create other large acrylic paintings featuring my social commentary on health care and Social Security and the future challenges our society will be facing as Baby Boomers retire. During October one recent acrylic painting "Boomer's Retirement" was displayed at the Women Painter's exhibit - Mercer Island Community center gallery. It received third prize and I appreciate the recognition. Thank you Women Painters of Washington!
