Nancy Merkle Tacoma, Washington

Nancy Merkle's process begins with a glimpse of color, a flicker of light, a pattern, or a texture. Elements swirl in her mind for hours, sometimes days, sometimes weeks before a design clicks and is transferred to canvas. With the canvas in front of her, she works intuitively -- a mark here, a mark there, a little touch of color, a bit of texture -- until she is satisfied and declares the work finished. Currently Nancy's work leans toward abstraction; she doesn't paint the world as it is, but as she wishes it were. Bold colors and loose brush strokes are her goal. When she's not making art, Nancy travels the Pacific Coast with a bicycle strapped to the car and "curiosity in my back pocket."

    Artist Statement

    I am a visual artist living in the Pacific Northwest. My artistic life began at a very young age when I was introduced to oil painting and spent nearly every Saturday painting with my mentor, Gertrude Koegler. After she passed away, I continued my love of art and explored various other media including acrylics, watercolor, inks, and digital tools. I find inspiration in color, light, and the world around me. My subjects range from representational to abstract.
