Nancy Marsden is our artist for November & December. After moving to Tamworth in 1976, Nancy studied with accomplished artist, Cindi Swanson. Her pen and ink drawings of local homes and buildings were successful. The Tamworth Arts Association used her historic landmarks drawings for the cover of their silver anniversary calendar of events. The Tamworth Community Nurses Calendar also featured one of her drawings.
Study with Ernie Brown began with experimentation in acrylics. Still life workshops with nationally recognized artists, Judi Wagner and Tony Van Hassalt introduced her to loose flowing watercolors in which she worked for many years.
Impressionism has influenced her oils. Marsden says of her work, “Plein air landscapes where light becomes such an important factor is now my favorite form of artistic expression. With so much natural beauty in this area, there is always another view waiting.”
