b. 1968, Baltimore, Maryland

"Abstract painting focuses me on the creative and frees me from deliberate representation. I trust in the creative process and my intuition to make rapid decisions based on sensibility and aesthetics rather than a need to make a statement or express function. The materials and tools – paint applied with expired health insurance cards, plexiglass, or metal trowel - allow me to literally move the paint in such a way that I think gives the work its vibrancy and depth. I thrive in the tension and challenge of negotiating each movement of the paint to bring each piece to resolution."

Nancy has a Masters in Architecture from Rice University and has practiced architecture professionally in Cambridge and Boston, MA. She lives in Cambridge with her husband and two children and when not painting in her Somerville studio works in the world of real estate. Her paintings, some say, have an energy reminiscent of the buildings, facades, and site plans from her experience with built form.
