About Nancy Watson

I grew up in a small town in Penna., surrounded by fields and woodlands with wildflowers, so being a nature lover came naturally to me. A florist lived nearby who had planted a field with daffodils stretching out as far as I could see and that's where my love for flowers became magical. In school I was our class artist and often spent recess and lunch breaks decorating with seasonal themes. Later I won a prize in a painting contest called 'the meaning of America' with a painting which became prophetic for me. I painted two children, one black, one white playing on a beach and I have lived thirty eight years of my life in communities that were predominately African American. After high school I attended the Philadelphia college of Art for a couple of years, then married and had a son and a daughter and motherhood became my occupation. A semester of classes which I took while the kids were young showed me that we weren't really happy with me doing both and I really didn't get back into art again until my kids were in college. Then I finished my BFA through Edison State college in NJ, taking graphics classes as electives and painting outdoors with a watercolorist, Ruth Robinson. I worked for a couple of years for WEC International and CLC Publications. Later I did work for my son who is with a group called 'Inner change' and for a group called Tech Team. I also painted flowers for Encore Studios and sold some work privately. My work is realistic but not tight. I have found that I love the softness of watercolors, especially for flowers. I like a wide variety of subject matter and mediums and try to express my visual and emotional response to the subject. I am drawn in by the light or color or something symbolic. The world is full of wonder and I paint to express my feelings for it's beauty, it's common loveliness, and for it's tragedy as well.
