August Featured Artist – Nancy West

In August we will be showing one of our favorites – Nancy West. Nancy is another artist I did not meet until Paint Snow Hill. Although she lives close by in Chincoteague, her talent was not revealed to Bishop’s Stock until our first plein air event in April 2004. Since then we have loved having her paintings and having her as a featured artist. I have also learned of her many talents. As she has done in the past she will have her oil paintings and her Chinese sumi-e watercolors. If you go to her website you will see portfolios of her work – landscapes, wildlife, still life, children, figures and sumi-e. Recently she has started working with alcohol ink occasionally offering workshops. If you read Nancy’s biography you will see she actually started painting at the age of 10. She has not stopped!
