In Nancy Hughes Miller's landscapes and seascapes, the sky and clouds are often the dominant features of the composition. She says she challenges herself to depict them realistically, but in her own unique way. "Here, with daylight on the horizon, clouds hug the shore in soft blues and grays," she explains of this cool morning scene. "I experienced a feeling of serenity from looking at this sky. With artistic license, it was fun to work at getting both the ethereal and the ephemeral!"
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.”
