Nancy Hodge About

Horses and Women are my main themes. The relationship between women and horses from the Old West has not changed in over a hundred years. My love of horses motivates my art as does the love from the rider to her faithful companion. 2 comments

Biography

COWGIRL ART

By

Nance

Nancy must have been born with a pencil in hand, and she hasn__™t stopped

drawing since. She graduated from Kent State University with a BA in Fine

Art and then moved to California, where she attended UCLA and Long Beach State.

___My goal, using a combination of mixed media and watercolors, is to make people, mostly women, smile. I do have a few male clients also. I want people to feel good about themselves and optimistic about the future.

When one collector of my work noticed one of my prints in their psychiatrist__™s office, I was thrilled. I couldn__™t imagine a better place for an uplifting lighthearted artwork to be displayed.

I chose the cowgirl theme because, to me, she symbolizes the wild and free spirit inside us all. My whimsical pieces hopefully convey this attitude___. My latest line of images contains cats with 1920 ladies because they go together well.___

Nancy has taught art in public and private schools. She has been involved in many group and one-woman shows. She receives awards each year for submissions to the Ventura County Fair. Her mixed media and watercolors can be found in many public and private collections throughout the USA, Canada, and Europe.

She and her husband attend many Old West shows. She has had one woman shows, group shows in California, Arizona, and Nevada. Several Western stores in Arizona carry her note cards. Her line of cards, prints and accessories can be viewed at her website: www.CowGirlArtbyNance.com. From there you can click on the banner for Cafe Press. Samples of these items are here in the show. Christmas is coming so order now!

ECR Art Gallery in Cambria, and Outpost Trading in Santa Ynez, California are currently representing her Cowgirl artwork. Sabas Western Store in Scottsdale, Rawhide in Chandler, and Big Bronco in Cave Creek, Az. are carrying her line of artwork as well.

We also do framing at a much lesser price than at a frame shop. We use barnwood and acrylic instead of fragile glass.

Nancy and her husband David and their cat Georgie live in Ventura, California.
