Nancy Bush

B    i    o    g    r    a    p    h    y

1947 -

 

Nancy Bush is a native Texan who was born in Austin and currently resides in Fredericksburg, TX. Her pursuit of art has taken her to many beautiful places in the world to study and paint a wide variety of subject matter.  “Landscape is my love and is always a challenge, spiritually and emotionally.  The variety and vastness of it can sometimes be overwhelming.  Simplification is the answer.  ‘Less Is More’.  The last light of the day or daybreak interests me more than other times of the day.  I also love gray cloudy days.

Trying to capture the spirit and emotion of what is happening before my eyes is the greatest challenge. I want the viewer to feel the physicality and emotional essence of the subject matter of the painting.”

 

Her greatest influence in her art has come from the nineteenth and twentieth century painters George Inness, Isaak Levitan, Bruce Crane, John Henry Twachtman and Russell Chatham.

 

“Nothing can imitate nature, but I hope my paintings will convey a single quiet moment of the landscape in its raw beauty.”
