Nancy Eckels | Canyon Country, California USA
California artist Nancy Eckels’ has just completed a 20 painting, 2 month exhibition at Stanford Art Spaces on the campus of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. In addition, one of her paintings was recently featured on NBC’s LXTV Open House New York, where designer Courtney Cachet chose her work to help complete the makeover of a room in a New York home.
Nancy has been painting full time for ten years since ending another creative career. As a child, she dabbled in art, but always wanted to experience show business. She happily worked in television for many years, and was a director on the CBS daytime drama, "The Bold and the Beautiful" when she decided to move on to painting. Given her family background, it seemed like the most natural transition she could make. Her parents met in an oil painting class, and her sister, aunts and uncles are all artists.
Nancy considers herself a self-taught artist, obtaining a wealth of knowledge by osmosis from talented, artistic family members, in addition to study and training on her own. She has also been involved in workshops by such wonderful artists as Katherine Chang Liu, Carole Barnes, and Pat Dews. Nancy will be painting as long as she can hold a brush. It's a passion that will not be lost to retirement. She lives with her husband in Canyon Country, California.
