Biography from Meibohm Fine Arts, Inc.:
About the Artist:

"Although I've been drawing and designing and fabricating artwork of one kind or another for most of my life, I'm primarily a painter. My work is exhibited around Buffalo, NY, in Manhattan, and in other locations in the Northeast as well as the Southeast. I was born in Baltimore in 1940 and grew up in Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I studied painting at Cornell University, Penn State, the Maryland Institute College of Art, and SUNY Buffalo, and I have worked as a graphic designer and artist. After leaving college, I raised six children and painted sporadically over a span of twenty-odd years in Maryland, finding small daily ways to stave off my hunger for making visual art, showing in regional galleries and shows and grateful for the occasional sale. The next thirteen years as a single mother in Western New York were a difficult but exciting period of growth that sealed my creative determination. I did salaried and freelance graphic work, painted more and even showed again. I've lived in Western New York for over 20 years now, currently south of Buffalo with my husband Dwight, with whom I share a large combined family. Major influences on my work are apparent: love of the outdoors, especially rolling farmland and upland woods; a strong spiritual life; and a lifelong fascination with textiles. I enjoy the work of many painters; I am moved also by land art and much three-dimensional work."

Artist Statement:

"I am concerned with the possibility of routes for our universal journey, in particular those which provide accessibility to the Sacred. I happen to see and feel those routes and paths and ways most clearly in the natural world and so express them visually in landscape.

The works are based on actual sites; in the beginning I make visits; site drawings and photographs, and start from those references. As I work, each piece grows beyond the sketches and references, morphing in response to both my expressive and formal concerns. The finished piece is seldom quite what I intended; I just keep trying.
"

Nancy currently maintains her studio in Orchard Park, NY.
