Artist’s Statement

"I am drawn to the Christmas lights in winter, the starry skies of night or the fireflies of summer. In my painting, I hope to capture light and provide a luminescent image, whether that be glowing objects or capturing the light as it illuminates a scene."

Nancy Lloyd has traveled around the world, calling many locations “home”, including 12 years spent internationally in England, the Philippines and Hong Kong. She moved to her current home in Solebury, PA in 2007. Nancy has been painting in oils since 1993 and enjoys all types of subject matter. She also works in encaustics, collagraphs, monoprints and collages.

Ms. Lloyd has had the opportunity to study with internationally-noted artists, including Emmy Award-winning David Dunlop. She has immersed herself in diverse cultures and been exposed to local art techniques and materials world-wide. Nancy has received numerous awards, notably the Stamford Pulmonary Associates Award for the oil painting "A Quiet Moment" at the prestigious “55th Annual Art of the Northeast USA” held by the Silvermine Guild Galleries, New Canaan, CT in 2004 and the New Vision Award of Miniature Prints in Hong Kong for the monoprint "Turtle and Fish" at the “Hong Kong Visual Arts Festival 2001”. Her work can be found in collections world-wide.

Nancy enjoys giving back to the community by being an active volunteer for artistic causes, recently serving on the Boards of the Philadelphia Sketch Club, Philadelphia, PA and Artsbridge, Lambertville, NJ. While living in Connecticut, Nancy founded and developed an art group within the Silvermine area, composed of Silvermine Community residents, to provide a forum for local artists to meet and inspire each other. The first Silvermine Community Artists in Residence show was held at the Silvermine Tavern in February 2005, with 25 participants; it is an active group that continues today.

Nancy's most recent artwork involves creating layers of translucent panels of rice paper, using acrylic medium, iridescent and translucent colors in an attempt to capture the effect of light in combination with the ocean.
