Nancy Couick Studios & Gallery
Nancy was born on St. Patrick's Day in Asheville, North Carolina and currently lives in Charlotte. Her father was from South Carolina and her mother from North Carolina. As you can see, Nancy's heart and her roots are in the Carolinas!
Nancy paints in watercolors and acrylics and has studied with numerous well-known artists including Harris Holt, Joseph Bohler, Tom Lynch, Susanna Spann, Margaret Hall Hoybach, Steve Rogers, and Robert Burridge.
She instructs in watercolors on annual painting tours in Italy, and is currently working on a series of works based on Italian life and the Italian countryside. Some recently completed paintings are of Portofino, the Cinque Terra, Lake Como, Venice, Cortona, Tuscany - including Pienza, Lucca, Florence, Bagno Vignoni, Siena, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, the Tuscan countryside and of Rome. Subjects included villas, lakes, a barber in his shop doorway, a dog guarding his master's shop, a canal in Venice, streetside venues, harbors and boats. Nancy will be leading a painting and cooking trip to Italy in May 2007. The past few years tours have led Nancy's group to Tuscany, Venice, the Amalfi Coast, Rome, Umbria and other beautiful areas of Italy. This year's tour will have something for everyone as cooking classes will be a part of the adventure in a Tuscan villa just south of Florence, followed by a trip to Lake Como including a private boat tour with visits to the incredibly beautiful lakeside gardens there! A great trip for painters and non-painters alike!
Nancy continues her Botanical Garden series. Some of these works have been found in the museum shop of Brookgreen Gardens in Pawley's Island, S.C. and in the garden shop of Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, N.C. She is well known for her beautiful flower portraits painting close-ups of magnificent blossoms. Some of her favorites are roses, peonies, calla lilies, tulips, azaleas, magnolias, and irises. Nancy's works can be found in corporate and private collections in the United States, Italy, South Africa, and in Australia.
