Nancy Kingman enjoys being outdoors and finds inspiration for her paintings in nearby parks and nature preserves. Many of her landscapes were started en plein air at places like Jockey Hollow and the Frelinghuysen Arboretum and then finished in the studio. Other scenes are from some of her favorite places in Cape Cod and along the Delaware River. In all of them, she tries to capture the light and atmosphere, and some of the magic of being in that spot at that particular moment.
Nancy began painting with acrylics about five years ago and has since moved to oils and watercolor. She has taken classes at the Morris County Art Association and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit, and is a member of both, as well as of the New Jersey Society of En Plein Air Painters. She currently serves as the newsletter editor of the Art League of the Chathams.
