Nancy-Lynne Hughes works predominantly in acrylic but also enjoys other mediums. Her favourite subject is the local landscape; be that the intimate view of a beautiful flower, a flower garden, a bed of river rocks, or the vastness of the prairies around her. She looks for those moments when the changing light turns the ordinary to the extraordinary and strives to capture and share those breathtaking moments.
Nancy has been teaching art for over 25 years. She offers art classes, workshops, and painting getaways to students of all ages and in all mediums.
“How fortunate I feel to live in an Alberta where we have easy access to some of the most beautiful scenery on the planet! An artist can travel in any direction and never run out of subjects to paint. Each day I am offered a myriad of inspirational subjects to choose from. My favorite is the local landscape; be that the intimate view of a wonderful flower, a flower garden, a bed of river rocks, or the vastness of the prairies.”
“What I particularly cherish, are those opportunities when I am presented the rare gift of the ‘wow’ moment; that moment when the light transforms an ordinarily gem of a thing from beautiful to breathtakingly extraordinary. I capture these ‘gems’ with my camera, then take my treasures back to the studio where I can get work them up into paintings.”
“My medium of choice is acrylic. I like the fast-drying time and enjoy the flexibility of working on various sizes of canvas, aiming to capture the reality and essence of that ‘wow’ moment and translate and share that extraordinary experience.”
