Artist Statement

I will never run out of subject matter. Every outward glance inspires a painting: the rise and fall of a mountain, a finger poised over a guitar string, a tiny fossil in a slab of limestone, the shadow of a wave. It is my joy to strive to evoke the truth, the heart, the completeness that lives in the subjects I choose.

About Nancy

In 1988 I started my professional art career with a succesful show of paintings created during my years of study with artist Bette Rothwell. That same year my husband, two young daughters and I made our first of many extended trips to Baja California. I have since had a full career painting, and the travel to Baja culminated in 2007 with us building a house and gallery in a small fishing village there. I now live half of the year in Canada and half in Baja, and paint with inspiration from both locations.

Selected CV

Education

After graduating from Capilano College, Vancouver, with a degree in Media Arts, I was mentored for four years by artist Bette Rothwell MSA in a full study of two dimentional media. I began my professional art career in 1988.


Over the next 10 years I took numerous classes including a year of study with Emily Carr college of art Vancouver, figure drawing with Centre 64 Kimberley and Okanagan Summer School, woodblock and mixed media studies. Talavera potters in Dolores Hidalgo gave both inspiration and advice.


I have taught classes including Professional Development art projects for public school teachers, children's art, pottery hand building and painting.


Awards

As an emerging artist, I was accepted as a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and the Oil Pastel Association of America. I received awards in competitions in both of these associations, as well as numerous BC provincial and regional shows.


Work

In 1990 I opened Pridham Studio in Creston along with my husband David. With David as the potter, and me as the painter we established a successful pottery/art business selling through our home gallery and in galleries across western Canada and the US. We sold the business to our daughter and son-in-law in 2011. You can like them on Facebook here:
