Nancy has loved painting and drawing since her childhood. She had studied Chinese brush painting with Master teacher Yung Liu in her 20s and later started oil painting with Master teacher Yong Zhou and well-known oil painter Grace Graupe Pillard for many years until now. She enjoys the feeling of total freedom when she paints and through painting, she has developed a deeper appreciation of her surroundings and a deeper sense of compassion, empathy, and humanity as she tries to capture the essence and beauty of nature and people. She believes painting has a life and spirit of its own that communicates directly with the viewers. She is convinced that there is a positive role for artists as they instill the magical strength in their artworks that enhances the quality of people’s spiritual life and helps build a more beautiful world.
Nancy received her BBA and MBA from Bernard M. Baruch College and worked in the telecommunications and computer technology industries for decades before retiring at the end of 2015 as the CFO and VP of Administrations. She then worked as an independent management consultant for 2 years. In 2017, she decided to devote all of her time to art, her lifelong passion, and to her dream of building an art gallery. She has accomplished the dream and is now focusing on helping all her artists to achieve higher realms and gain main-stream recognition.
