Nancy Stella Galianos is a self-taught artist born in Montreal to Greek Canadian parents. Through her contemporary and abstract expression, she conveys a repertoire of emotions through her sensitivities of the colors and brushstrokes that she applies on her canvases.
Her interest in drawing and painting was stimulated at an early age while she spent her childhood and her adolescence in the urban atmosphere of New Jersey. Influenced and encouraged by her art teachers, her creative vision is nourished by the diversity of her experiences.
Back in Quebec in the late ’60s, Nancy participated in various art workshops at the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal. A few years later, she completes her studies in Studio Art at Concordia University. Later she studies Communications at the University of Montreal and then starts a career in various business environments. Combined with trips to Europe and South America, both her experience in business and international trips enriches her culture and sensitivity and gives essence to her art.
Retired since 2010, Nancy is fully dedicated to create, in a constant renewal, a universe of a dynamic interpretation of different images with defiant bold colors and strokes, which are expressed via an elixir of emotions and energy. The birth of her art becomes a passionate adventure that becomes a constant effervescent evolution.
Still today, Nancy regularly attends art workshops.
