Nancy is an impressionist-style landscape painter who enjoys experimenting with colour. She finds inspiration in her kayaking trips to Georgian Bay, in her travels to destinations by the waterside, as well as in her garden.
Nancy studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design focusing mainly on printmaking, fabric design and enamel on metal. For most of her career she has worked creating art with high school students who have developmental disabilities. Nancy returned to her artistic roots, inspired by various workshops of Canadian landscape painters.
Nancy’s work is exhibited at Lansing Gallery in Napanee, The Red Canoe Gallery in Port Carling, Kingston Glass Studio in Kingston, Killarney Mountain Lodge, and Lake Superior Provincial Park Visitor Centre.
“ I enjoy evoking memories and feelings of beautiful water views and scenic lookouts, through the exploration of colour, light and design.” Nancy Yanaky
