Nancy began exhibiting her contemporary, colourful paintings in 2019. Within a year she was invited to exhibit alongside some of the UK's most accomplished artists including 5 Turner Prize winners and 3 of her personal art heroes Antony Gormley, Grayson Perry and Maggi Hambling.
Nancy started her artistic endeavours at an early age and kept painting throughout a 30 year career in the charity sector. Having decided to devote more time to painting she has been delighted that her paintings have received wide appreciation and now hang in homes as far afield as New York, Jerusalem and Australia.
She is excited to be working in partnership with a number of galleries across the UK, from Scotland to the tip of Wales and many regions in England as it means more people can see, enjoy and have the opportunity to own her work.
Nancy aims to capture an essence rather than a literal interpretation of each subject. She enjoys not just the colour but the textural quality of paint and works with both to achieve the finished painting. With a dandelion, for instance, she paints with needles to capture their distinctive petals and for her poppy paintings she makes her own ‘palette knives’ by recycling milk cartons. The common thread in the subject matter of her paintings is her love of nature; inspired by trips around the coast of south west England and time spent growing plants in her small city garden.
