Nancy Holleran

Life is filled with great experiences. Ones that make us smile; ones that touch our hearts; and ones that leave us spellbound by nature’s beauty. As an artist, I have always chosen to incorporate people, animals or some unique structure in my paintings; they provide visual design interest and help capture the moment.

My design process starts with selecting several photographs of my subject matter to capture a composition which will enable the emotion and feeling I want to convey. A draft of the composition allows me to choose color scheme and suitable media options. More recently, I have been experimenting with more texture and watercolor approaches to my paintings. Each peice always has some improvisation along the way to solve a problem area. It may be a change in the color values to enhance aspects of the design and improve the overall balance and effect. If a painting seems flat, I like to add another medium - something that brings forward more depth with highly pigmented watercolor or iridescent paints to bring contrast. The most exciting part of the process is watching a blank piece of paper transform into something full of life; it encourages me to challenge myself and explore techniques and ideas that are out of my comfort zone. My paintings are developed over days or put away for a week to review if it has accomplished the feeling I wanted to convey.

My paintings take simple scenes from anywhere in the world to hopefully provide some positive unspoken message for the viewer. If they make you smile, laugh or provide sense of peace, I have succeeded. Ten percent (10%) of each of my paintings’ sale proceeds will go to a non-profit organization of the customer’s choice to pass on some joy to others.
