Nancy Graham
Denver, Colorado

Nancy Graham was born into a lineage of talented artists; her grandmother had a long history with oil paintings, while her mom elected for watercolors. Although grandma would proudly claim that Nancy painted with oils first, it was watercolors that stuck. The translucence of her watercolors means she plans each piece in advance. “I can’t paint over mistakes. There are no second chances,” she says. Nancy graduated with an degree from Northwestern University before continuing her studies at the Art Institute of Chicago and then abroad in Florence, Italy. “I don’t look for beautiful scenes to paint, I look for natural wonders,” she says. “I use my imagination to add to what I already see.”

Comments About This Piece

I love painting aspen trees because they are white and show up so well against different backgrounds. Also, their branches grow at such unpredictable angles. This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Watercolor painting

Watercolor paint is made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolor, which refers to both the medium and the finished artwork, is typically applied to paper. It is translucent, and appears luminous on the surface of the paper. Watercolor painting is a very old medium, dating back to the Renaissance when it was used primarily for botanical and wildlife illustration.


Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
