NANCY OVERHOLTZ
Biography


Nancy's love of art began as a young girl as did her fascination with animals. As far back in my childhood as I can remember, animals delighted me. "Any creature, from a stray dog to the frogs that lived in the pond near my home, was a constant source of wonder."

As a young girl, Nancy studied for a number of years with artist Lee Addison, who remains an inspiration. She studied art at Palomar College in San Marcos and has taken workshops with watercolor artist Tomotsu Fujiwara.

Nancy resides in Bishop, California with her husband and fellow artist, Ron, who specializes in woodturning. Together they exhibit their work at several art shows in California and Nevada.

Nancy wants her paintings to express the love she feels for all animals. "I hope that my work will instill in others an appreciation and concern for wild animals and their vanishing habitat."

Nancy is a member of several art associations including the Eastern Sierra Art League, Sierra Desert Art Association, Inyo Council for the Arts, and Mono County Arts Council. She is also a member of many wildlife conservation organizations to which she contributes a portion of the profits from the sales of her paintings. Among them: Exotic Feline Breeding Compound, Rosamond, California, Animal Ark, Reno, Nevada, Defenders of Wildlife, Predator Conservation Alliance, National Wildlife Federation, Wildlife Conservation Society, World Wildlife Fund, Audubon, Mono Lake Committee, Nature Conservancy, and Wilderness Society.Nancy is a member of several art associations including the Eastern Sierra Art League, Sierra Desert Art Association, Inyo Council for the Arts, and Mono County Arts Council.
