Originally from Rhode Island, Nancy and her husband currently reside in The Villages, Florida.

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.

“I enjoy telling stories using shapes, values and colors that are exciting and interesting. Not having anything recognizable just adds to the challenge. Creating layers and dimension with transparent watercolor allows me to use my instinct to shape the story and direction of my painting.” Nancy Dias
