Originally from New Orleans, Nancy’s interest in art began in grade school when she enrolled in summer art classes at Delgado, now known as New Orleans Museum of Art. She continued her art studies, majoring in art education at LSU, Louisiana College and LSU at Alexandria. In the 1970s, she had the opportunity to take workshops and classes from artists such as Edgar Whitney, Ida Kohlmeyer, John Gaddis; at the New Orleans Academy of Art; and the Instituto in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, to name a few.
Meanwhile, life intervened for 30 years with 2 children, a full time real estate career, and 3 grandchildren. In 2005, after living in Denver for 20 years, longing to be closer to her roots again, Nancy settled in Ponchatoula, LA, to rekindle her long lost love of painting. With a plethora of classes and workshops available in the area, especially the Art Station, Nancy has been honing her craft and developing a special interest in impressionist painting. Her ultimate goal is to master the light and spontaneous touch of the masters of that era! Painting almost exclusively in acrylics, she enjoys depicting local scenes and lush landscapes of South Louisiana, and beaches and waterways along the coast that she missed so much while living in the mountains. She has also started a painting series of Vintage Cars and Trucks!
