Nancy Essex

Featured Artist for September and October

Nancy Essex has been a watercolorist for over 30 years. Her husband’s career in the Air Force required frequent moves which enabled her to attend workshops and classes offered by well-known artists in many different locales across the U.S. With their guidance and encouragement, she refined her painting skills and knowledge relative to composition, design, line, rhythm, values and perspective.  
Now a resident of Freedom, New Hampshire’s beauty inspires Nancy’s artistic vision and is the basis for many paintings which she hopes viewers will find inspiring and full of joy. Watercolors continue to intrigue her with their exciting, sometimes explosive pigment interactions, and magical saturated colors. Each artistic endeavor offers new challenges and adventures as paints mingle on the paper in exciting, unexpected ways which often lead the creative process.  
Nancy is a member of the Mt. Washington Valley Art Association and serves on their Board. She was selected by MWVAA to be a juried artist.  We hope you will come enjoy Nancy's beautiful watercolors on display in the library through October.
