Nancy Nowak

For me, it’s all about creating. It’s being attuned to the inspiration that nature provides, and intuitively, patiently, and creatively, letting go and seeing where that leads. Color and light are what inspires me. It is an ongoing endeavor to capture it artistically yet technically and to bring out the spirit of my subjects using the glorious medium of pastels.Nancy Feinman Nowak earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Cleveland Institute of Art in 1981, where her main interests were Enameling and Oil painting. After owning both a calligraphy and printing business, she rededicated herself to her art. Striving to evoke an emotional response and awareness to the everyday beauty that surrounds us, Nancy paints in the representational style with an impressionist flair. Nancy offers workshops and classes in pastel, focusing on landscapes. She is a Master Circle member of the International Association of Pastel Societies, a Signature Member of Pastel Society of America, and a Member of Excellence in the Southeastern Pastel Society. Originally from New Jersey, Nancy now resides in the Atlanta, GA area with her husband Don and dog Beaux. When not painting or working, you can often find her at the golf course or curled up reading a good book.
