Window on LA, Painting by Nancy Clark

Nancy Firetag Clark


  • Abstract Artist
  • Phone: 619.507.8824
  • Studio: Applegate Valley
Nancy's paintings are created with acrylic, French Caran d’Ache and Sennelier pastels on canvas. Her work was selected by Peter Frank, who has curated shows for the Guggenheim and is an art critic for the Huffington Post, for the SDAI So. Cal. Regional Exhibition. Quoted in Forbes, she said, “It is my intent to deliver optimistic feelings through my abstract paintings. Approaching the canvas without preconceived ideas or dogma, I am painting in the moment.”
Whitewater rafting and traveling with husband and dogs fuels her inspiration. You can find her on a river bank, in a field, or by the edge of a marsh. Click to visit Linda Curtis' website to learn more and view her online galleries of artwork!

  • Contemporary Artist
  • Phone: 949.338.0729
  • Studio: Jacksonville
My background in art education empha- sizes a strong foundation of classical art training, greatly influencing my artistic focus and direction. My intent is to capture, on paper or canvas, mysterious and thought provoking scenes. Nature with its moods and soft edges has always inspired me to draw and paint abstracts, landscapes or figure studies. My art is in private collections nationwide; I've exhibited in galleries and juried shows in S. California, NW Arkansas and S. Oregon.
