About Nancy Brockmon

 
 
  • Biography
    From my earliest of childhood memories I had pencils and crayons in hand.  Through the years that changed to include clay, ink, oils and now acrylics. There were many years I did not follow my artistic path but, now that I am retired from the business world and my children are out of the nest, I can create to my heart's content.  

    The natural world fascinates me.  Landscapes, seascapes and animals are my most recent subjects. I am drawn to the elemental in life especially the borders between land and sea and the fabulous rock formations that evolve from the endless cycle of the seas intersection with land.  I am enthralled by the infinite textures found in bark, rock, sand, fields, urban facades and the smallest of things like a single leaf.  I am formally untrained and paint from the heart and with the passion stored in a long life. 

    Often, I use photographs taken over my many summers spent on the coast of Maine or of local sites such as birdwatching trails as the inspiration for my works. Photos of our urban environment interest me.  My friends have sent me photos too and I work out doors when I can.  I also paint animals, including dogs, birds, and fish in addition to lush and varied scenes from the rolling hills of Pennsylvania where I make my home.  

    I hope you enjoy my work.  If you have questions or wish to commission a work, please contact me through this web site.

    Event: Works

    Dates: June 1, 2010 - Sept. 30, 2010

    Venue: The Artist Shop, Elkins Park, PA USA

    The exhibition was in 2010 and was my first. I started to paint after the death of my husband and the diagnosis of my daughter with Breast Cancer both in 2007. There was so much emotion stored from a lifetime of experiences good and bad that I felt If I did not paint I would burst. I am not a trained artist except for the good fortune to have Boris Blai, the renown sculptor who lived close by and became my mentor and teacher in the last years of his life along with his wife, Bertha Blai a wonderful potter, guided me in that work.
