About the Artist:

Nan has explored a variety of mediums over the past several years, but watercolour and graphite continue to be her favourites. They require no toxic cleanup, are easily portable, and allow for both intricate detail and loose impressionistic effects. The inherent fluidity and transparency of watercolour make it an ideal medium to paint the reflective qualities of water, and atmospheric effects that are often in her work.

A strong environmentalist, Nan’s passion and love for hiking, canoeing and camping are reflected in her landscapes, but she also seeks to capture the grace of a child, or found treasures, with finely rendered portraits and still life images. Canoes are often featured in her paintings, since they are ideal vehicles of entry into the natural world.

Nan views her art as a dialogue between the artist and the viewer. The excitement and goal for Nan is to make an emotional connection with her viewers; to offer new ways of seeing. Nan has exhibited her work at art shows in the Kawarthas, and in Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto. Her work can be found in private, and corporate collections, across Canada, and the US, and has been featured in both local, and national magazines.

Nan’s canoe route images are available in the Canadian Canoe Museum Gift Shop.
