About

Nanc Gordon is an award-winning fine art painter who works in watercolor and acrylic.

She is inspired by the natural world. From the Canadian Rockies to the Florida Everglades, she pursues the beauty of flowers and plants, bringing graceful botanicals inside to reconnect us with nature and create a sense of calm in a hectic world. Nanc is passionate about design and driven by the need to challenge herself.

 Striking colors, exquisite patterns and surprising textures find their way into her paintings and contemporary graphic prints. Her work transforms complex compositions into clean, contemporary designs, each seeking to communicate the essential characteristics of the inspiration.

Originally from Boston, MA, Nanc attended Parsons School of Design in New York earning a BFA. She worked for many years as a graphic designer in New York and Boston before receiving a certificate in decorative painting from the Rhode Island School of Design. Nanc owned a decorative painting business that specialized in floorcloths and furniture in Boston. After a move to Dallas, TX, Nanc decided to become a fine art painter and hasn’t looked back.

Her current work includes a series of contemporary graphic prints.
