Nancy’s heritage stems from three generations of Texans from Erath County. Making her home for the last forty two years in Northwest Montana, the influence of Glacier Park and “Big Sky Country” have influenced and inspired her work. Having studied in France and Britain for a total of eight years in her early career she brings something fresh to her contemporary silk paintings, influenced by British watercolorists and French oil painters of the past. She is known for her work on silk and works in oil and watercolor as well.
She was the Jackson Hole Featured Artist in 2014 and is a founding member of the C.M. Russell Museum’s Russell Skull Society. She regularly exhibits in The Buffalo Bill Art Show and Sale and the “Cowgirl Up Show” among others. Her “Forever Glacier” twenty-five painting travellling exhibit is currently showing at the Booth Museum in Georgia.
”I was a 17-year-old art student in Paris, France when I first saw Toulouse Lautrec’s work in person: big, bold, filling the space, painting from a place of strength. That is who I wanted to be as a person and an artist. All these years later, I try to do just that in my studio every day.”
