Artist of the moment…….Nancy Cawdrey

 

Nancy Cawdrey is a wonderful artist who works with the floral and American West genre. Nancy Cawdrey was born in 1948. Her father was a military officer and growing up she was able to experience many different cultures. For her artistic education Cawdrey studied abroad in Paris, France and also in London, England.

Cawdrey is based out of Bigfork, Montana.

Here we visit the artist at her home in Montana. The artist credits Montana for her inspiration and she often will paint in plein air in the Big Sky Country:

The artist’s work looks different than many of her peers working in the same genre, the artist works with the Asian technique painting with dye on silk and mixing colors on the painting surface. Though she is renown for her dye works, Cawdrey also paints in oils and watercolor.

Cawdrey emphasizes color and texture patterns in her work.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

I enjoy the style of this artist. She brings new life to a centuries old genre. By mixing colors on her painting surface she is able to use color in areas such as the fur of animals or water reflections.
