Nancy Masters About
My specialty is automotive fine art where I combine a photo-realistic approach to my oil paintings along with my desire to be an abstract painter. Many of my paintings just show a portion of the grill and headlights of the vehicle and I let the viewer's imagination finish the painting. I love painting chrome with its multicolored reflection I find in the fenders and bumpers. It takes me 60 plus hours to complete a painting and the cars appear to drive off the canvas with realism and bold color. This is not art for the garage or basement walls; it is genuine American art that belongs in the home or office.
There are always one or two non-automotive paintings on my easel at all times. I try to paint something that women will appreciate and so I paint flowers and landscapes along with commissions of animals and vehicles.
I have always believed in making my own opportunities and have put together a group of woman artisans who hold an event in June called "Gardens, Gallery & Gifts". This two day boutique art show includes a garden and house tour, a gallery, and a barn and tents filled with 20 high end woman artisans.
I reproduce all of my paintings in 10x8" archival prints matted to 14
x11" for $25 and cards for $3. I have the capability to reproduce my art to your specified dimensions on paper or canvas. Please contact me for quotes.
I created my first canvas in 2003 when most of my responsibilities were behind me. I have studied with a trompe l'oeil teacher extensively and its influence can be seen in the photo-realism in my paintings. I not only paint, I design and sew my clothing and work with fibers through felting.
I am a member of the Academic Artists Assoc. and the Tolland County Art Assoc. I have exhibited extensively with one woman shows and many groups shows throughout the New England area.
My strength lies in marketing and I give talks and workshops to groups on how to reproduce their art and how to get their art work into the public sector.
I formed a creative co-op that gives artists space to paint, bead, quilt, sew and knit. In 2009 we were selected to do a Christmas installation for the
New Britain Museum of American Art.
I raised $100,000 in 100 days to match a $100,000 grant for an addition for a library addition. I also helped raise one million dollars over a 7 year period for a youth center in the Town of East Windsor, CT.
I hold degrees in Marketing and Finance and have studied Accounting and Landscape Architecture.
