nancy talks about her art

Nature is an elusive and deeply inspirational subject . Its movement is both its inherent character and a mirror for light - yet these things are hard to capture on a still surface. Its live presence is nuanced - unpredictable - and has been heavily idealized and romanticized. As a subject in painting, it is sacred as well as trite. My work seeks to discover the land and sea's
hidden and mysterious nature without compromising it by becoming too beautiful, and without sacrificing both it’s mystery and it’s feral and fierce qualities.”
