Nancy Lee Davis
Nancy Lee Davis, a contemporary impressionist painter and colorist, started her career as an environmental advocate. For more than thirty years, she devoted herself to preserving clean air, water and natural places. Now Nancy puts brush to canvas and paints those beautiful landscapes.
Nancy paints in oil with loose brush marks and vivid colors, preferring to have a strong abstract quality to her work while painting representationally. She enjoys painting figures into her scenes, particularly of children. Still Life painting is also among her favorites. Nancy includes colors with healing qualities in her works.
Over the last 20 years, Nancy has studied with many well-known contemporary artists that she admires. She has painted in several states and countries, but her favorite subject is Maryland’s Howard County and Eastern shore.
Nancy has won several first place awards both locally and regionally. Her work resides in numerous private collections throughout the United States, as well as several foreign countries. Nancy says “The most exciting part of being a painter is that there is always more to learn and improvements to be made.” She also enjoys passing on her painting knowledge and skills by teaching through Howard County Parks and Rec.
