Introducing: Nancy Whitlock

Introducing: Nancy Whitlock

On a road-trip through west Texas we met soft pastel artist, Nancy Whitlock in Alpine, a small, desert town of approx 6000 people.

Nancy’s work is extremely vivid and charged with energy. I was immediately drawn to her work because of this. She ‘paints’ in soft pastels and her style reminds me lot of my silk-screening days. Nancy’s style also reminded me of a South African artist who paints impasto-style in oils: Gillian Hahn. Gillian is an old school friend and there were many similar comparisons to be made between these two artists, both personally and artistically.

‘Cerro Castelon’ – 2019
Framed @ $550*
‘Spirit of the Rio Grande’
Framed $1800*

In appearance, both artists are beautiful and bohemian with their long, flowing locks – both their works are inspired by nature, ‘painted’ thickly in bright, bold colours. In both cases, too, their work makes the viewer feel alive and happy and in awe of what mother nature has to share. Both capture these moments in their own, unique style, but still I found, a common thread. Can you see it too? – Gillian’s portfolio: CLICK HERE

‘The Lightness of Being’
Framed $950*

The above work was one of my favourites. I have always loved cacti and this large, bright rendition really tickled my fancy and I could just see it hanging in my lounge. The deep reds would capture my red decor accents and it would certainly remind of my 2019 trip to Texas. Unfortunately with the exchange rate at present, this beauty will have to remain in Alpine for the next, lucky prickly pear enthusiast.

Meeting the artist is always a fun experience. Nancy was open to sharing her camping experiences in the Big Ben area where she gets all her inspiration from … and you can see why – it has beautiful, rugged scenery: perfect for any artist.
