Good. Art.

Nancy Hielscher has been a resident of Sarasota since 1979. She graduated from the American

Academy of Art-Chicago, and has continued her studies at Ringling College of Art and Design.

She is currently a member of Petticoat Painters, Women Contemporary Artists, Art Center

Sarasota and Art Center Manatee.

As a studio artist, she finds her artistic voice mainly through oil painting, particularly in the realm of impactful still life images and lush foliage. However, she is not afraid to venture into uncharted territories and explore acrylics, mixed media on newsprint, pushing the boundaries of her creativity. Her work seeks to evoke emotion, spark contemplation, and with each brushstroke and innovative technique, she invites you to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.

Her work can be found in many private collections in Germany, the Midwest, and the Tampa Bay
