Nancy Stanchfield is a contemporary impressionist who, according to Bonnie Ganglehoff of Southwest Art, “creates intriguing mixed media pieces.”  Painting with acrylic, the bulk of Nancy’s work is done in mixed media where she incorporates a variety of found papers and charcoal.  Her brilliant atmospheres are teeming with frivolity and a joyful patina of life.  On her early awareness of color, Nancy recollects:


I was just five when Dad painted our kitchen ceiling that glossy peach, the

color of a robin’s breast; I can still remember how warm and happy it made

me feel inside.  Glowing nightly above our family’s kitchen table, the painted

ceiling lured my innocent eyes upwards and more than once, so immersed in

the beauty, I actually tumbled backwards off my stool.  To this day that color

seduces me with its inviting glow.


Nancy was born in Eastern Washington.  A self-taught artist, her art career spans thirty-five years and includes work in textiles, graphic art, interior design, color consulting, and fine art.  Nancy has exhibited her work in California, Oregon, New Mexico and Arizona.  Currently, gallery representation is through Ramey Fine Art in Palm Desert, California, Aspen Art Gallery in Aspen, Colorado and Gallerie Corazon in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
