Although her journey in the field of fine art didn’t begin until later in life, it was more than rewarding. Nancy enrolled in the Academy of Realist Art in the fall of 2007 and earned her diploma in October 2013. Her education started with graphite, moving into carbon, then charcoal and finally oil paint. Initially Nancy enrolled into the Academy to pursue her love of the human figure but as she progressed through the program she became very fond of painting still life. Nancy taught at the Academy in all levels of the program for two years following her graduation. At present she is a full time artist working from her Stratford, Ontario studio.
