Of her work, Nancy Lindsay writes: "Creating art has been a life-long journey for me. As a child growing up in Nebraska, my father's drawings and my grandfather's woodcarvings inspired me.

"Over the years, the landscape has become my inspiration, whether it is the endless Nebraska horizon, the deep woodlands and river valleys of Iowa or the rugged Mediterranean coastline. I prefer to paint on location (en plein air) and complete a painting in one session (alla prima). One always makes friends with a painting easel; people, especially children are immediately drawn to it. I am an ambassador of art. Painting outside gives me the opportunity to inspire those who have never seen an artist at work.

"During the Iowa winter, I work in my studio on larger paintings and private and corporate commissions. I'm constantly experimenting with new texture, color palettes and subject matter. And love the challenge of a new project!"
