Of her work, Nancy Lindsay writes, "Creating art has been a life-long journey for me. As a child, growing up in Nebraska, my father's and my grandfather's woodcarvings inspired me. My mother always encouraged me to be creative and provided me with plenty of art supplies. Over the years, the landscape has become my inspiration, whether it is the endless Nebraska horizon, the deep woodlands and river valleys of Iowa, or the rugged Mediterranean coastline. I prefer to paint on location (en plein air) and complete a painting in one session (alla prima). One always makes friends with a painting easel; people, especially children are immediately drawn to it. I am an ambassador of art and painting outside gives me the opportunity to inspire those who have never seen an artist at work. During the Iowa winter, I work in my studio on large-scale gallery pieces and corporate or residential commissions. I'm constantly experimenting with new texture, color palettes and subject matter and love the challenge of a new project."
