Nancy Horwick

I am mainly an oil painter, and love both plein air and studio painting, depending on my mood. I’ve always been interested in the effects of light on objects or across the landscape. and attracted to bright, vivid colors. I think it’s fascinating how people see colors differently, so my pieces often ‘play up’ certain hues I see as predominant. I have studied with contemporary artists I admire, such as David Leffel, Jennifer McChristian, and Robert Burridge. I believe everyone has the creative spark, in one way or another, and tried to instill that in my students.
I’m a member of the Santa Barbara, Buenaventura, SCAPE, and Carpinteria Art Associations. I’m a working artist at OVA Gallery, and Poppies Gallery in Ojai, CA.
