In 2010, Nancy enrolled in the first sketching and plein-air oil painting classes of her life. She believes that she is living proof that artists are not all charmed creatures who hatch from magic eggs, instantly able to create all manner of masterpieces. Instead, art is a path that any mere mortal might endeavor to take, understanding that some stages may be easier to maneuver and master and there will be many highs and lows along the way. The gateway to this enchanted place is open for all to enter at whatever level of skill or stage of learning. Come along with Nancy and share her journey. May it inspire you to jump headlong into an adventure of learning all your own, fearless and free.
