Artwork

For artist Nancy Hughes Miller, there is much to see and imagine while walking on the beach. Channeling this inspiration, she blended a rainbow of soft colors in watery sand and a tranquil seascape with billowing clouds. "It is calming and invigorating to hear the waves and smell the sea air," says Nancy. "My senses are both relaxed and heightened at the ocean."

Nancy Hughes Miller

Cary, North Carolina

Reflected in Nancy Hughes Miller’s paintings are the coastal and rural environments of southeastern North Carolina, her birthplace, where she still spends much of her time. As a child, Nancy’s primary education did not include art classes, so she was delighted when one day her oldest brother returned home from college with newsprint and charcoal. She went on to pursue a career path in graphic design and fine arts. Now a full-time artist, Nancy experiments with vibrant colors and fluid forms to create her non-traditional, painterly landscapes. She enjoys working with oils, a medium that dries slowly and lends itself nicely to blending. Nancy strives to produce artwork that is, according to her, “quiet, yet bold.”
