Oil | Pastel

Nancy Nowak earned her BFA degree at Cleveland Institute of Art in enameling and Oil Painting after taking many drawing and painting classes since the age of 9. After owning both a calligraphy and printing business, she rededicated herself to her creative passion using the glorious medium of pastel. Nancy paints professionally and teaches workshops and classes.
An avid plein air artist, Nancy strives to evoke an emotional response and awareness to the everyday beauty that surrounds us. Nancy paints in both pastel and oil in a representational style with an impressionist flair in her unique interpretation of outdoor scenes.
