About the Artist
Nancy Lloyd has boundless energy to explore hidden details, untold stories, beauty in unexpected places, the unusual in the ordinary. And while she loves painting traditional landscapes, she is also drawn to the intimacy of the interior landscape, the interior world of people, whether revealed by a voyeuristic glance through a window in a restaurant, the observation of camaraderie of strangers in a neighborhood bar, the subtle gestures between two sweethearts, or the overlooked beauty of a row of garbage cans in a back alley. A seeker of the light of France, Nancy enjoys painting en plein air, especially the beauty of the California Coast, the backroads, the hills, vineyards set against the open sky, landscapes, farms, and cows transformed by light.
Born in Georgia, raised in Alabama, Nancy resides in Northern California in a lovely cottage where she can lean out her back window and snatch a luscious lemon from a tree.
