About Nancy

I've been a fine artist (painter) for about 50 years, starting at the age of 8. I went to Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, majoring in Art Education, then I went to Penn State graduate school to earn my Master of Fine Arts degree in painting. I've taught on the high school and college levels (drawing and figure drawing). I retired a couple of years ago and can devote more time to my painting. I'm also interested in general western art history and art appreciation. I've built a 100-page website showing my art, and including art instruction (drawing, design and painting), art history, art appreciation, and much more.

I believe strongly that drawing is the strongest foundation for art, and I use drawing exercises such as contour, gesture, and mass. For beginner painters I usually start with a simple still life, or painting landscapes outside. I believe that art is much more than technique; it deals with our individual emotions and ideas as we get to know ourselves. I don't believe that students should learn to paint in just one style, rather I admire many styles of art and encourage students to paint in the way most natural to them. I am interested in working with high school age and above.
