Art enriches reality by elevating our perception and the authenticity of everything on the planet. Art connects us ~ Nancy Frances
I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. I started drawing in pencil as a very young child. I began painting over 40 years ago. Many people see me as an extrovert, but I love solitude.
As an intuitive painter, I delight in making abstract marks. When creating, my aim is to convey a visual language to speak directly to the viewer's heart abstractly with passion, feeling, and respect. I enjoy sharing my point of view and expressing myself, and the way I view the world, through my art.
Diversity Series #11 - 36 x 36 in. with float-mount frame - acrylic, ink, and pastel
The Diversity series has been the longest-running series of my career. I started the series in the fall of 2017 when our country, it seemed, was falling apart, and tolerance was at an all-time low. Being a daughter of an immigrant father from Sicily, Italy, the series was my attempt to express my personal perspective on the definition and the many nuances of the word "Diversity" using abstract visuals.
