Nancy Rhodes Harper
Huntsville, Alabama

Nancy Rhodes Harper has been making art since the age of five, and always knew it was her destiny to be an artist. Painting in oils and mixed media, Nancy’s work features contemporary, stylized women stylistically inspired by her mentor Milt Kobayashi. “I study with him every year for two weeks in Arizona. He is my biggest influence,” she says of the artist. Nancy aims to convey attitudes of sass, intrigue, and whimsy in her female subjects. Her favorite element of the painting is the figure’s face. “Expressions on the faces evolve and set the tone” of the work, according to Nancy. The personality of each painting can be articulated entirely through the glimmer in the subject’s eyes or her coy smile.
