Painting has become her passion, and whenever possible she studies to learn and grow as an artist. Nancy’s favorite mediums include watercolor, acrylic, pen & ink and pastel, receiving awards in all categories.

The artistic challenges to her creativity and originality are what she enjoys the most. Nancy finds inspiration from everywhere, trying to see the world differently and looking for interesting angles or unique perspectives while striving to create something uncommon and challenging.

Nancy has been recognized numerous times by the prestigious Florida Watercolor Society taking top honors in the 2015 On Line Show; selected to have her paintings appear in the Appleton Museum of Ocala; and has won scores of ribbons in various art shows in her community.
