About Nancy

My love of art began as a child in my ability to draw. I was born into a family of creative people, my Father a musician, my Mother an artist. Several of my eight brothers and sisters are creative in one or both of these arts.

I never did much with my artistic talent until my three children were grown and I started dabbling. It was then I discovered my love for drawing the figure, especially faces.

My medium of choice is Watercolor and my inspiration is my Lord Jesus Christ who has given me my artistic talent and has blessed me with those who enjoy my work.

If you are interested in commissioning me to do a Portrait of your loved one, person or pet, contact me by phone or e-mail and we will talk over the details of your painting.

I can paint your portrait from a photograph or from sketches done in my home or yours. So whether it is a Portrait of yourself or your loved one, or of that special pet, give me a call. Feel free to ask all of your important questions. I guarantee that you will be 100% satisfied.

Please read my testimonials.


The first week of January 2010 I participated in the Arts Week at Greenville Technical Charter High School teaching the art of drawing the face from life to the high school students. And then watercolor painting the the faces that the students drew. It was alot of fun working with these future artists. You can see their work hanging in the school.


Open Studios Weekend in Greenville SC is always the first weekend in November where over 100 artists of all kinds of work open their studios to the public. It's a wonderful time to get to know the artists and see how they work. I have participated in the Open Studios weekend for the past 3 years opening my studio to the public.


A simple sketch of My Mother, who went to be with God.
How do I put her down on paper....My Mother, my friend, the artist and lover of mankind.

As I set up here in Bonita Springs FL I am ready to paint many more beautiful faces.
