When her teaching position at a local recreational and cultural center was scaled back, Nanci started accepting requests to do paintings for family and friends. She loved it and began a career in painting that has continued over 25 years. During that time, with her husband Dave, the project of which she's been most proud was the raising of a Godly and wonderfully creative son named Chris.
Nanci works predominantly in acrylic and other water-based paints. She is available for commissioned portraits, landscapes, animals, florals, floor and wall murals, scenery, faux finishes, etc. To place an order or communicate with the artist, visit her Contact Us page.
While she minored in theatre in college, Nanci didn't actively put this education to use until years later. Read about this on her Scenery page.

Entitled "Gina" this portrait measures 22" x 28" and was completed from multiple studio sittings and from photos taken on-site. A companion painting of her brother and the family dog was completed at the same time. See "David and Cinder" below.
