Color and design is nothing new for Nancy Anne Cox. She was born in May of 1955 in the small colorful little 19th century town of Mount Vernon, Washington. For the most part, the skies were gray and full of rain, but in the spring, the town was engulfed in acres and acres of yellow and red tulip fields. Nancy’s creative talents grew out of good art teachers and the need to work with her hands. In the beginning, it was sewing and crafts. After just a couple of years of sewing, she was making her own patterns. The next thing she excelled in was flower arrangements – learning from a local community college course. There she laid her own valuable groundwork for buying, creating and marketing her wares. After learning all she could about flower arrangement and design, Nancy pursued her next creative endeavor. Through her persistence, she landed a job decorating cakes and soon went on with her own business.
It was not until the early 90′s, when Nancy was a candidate for lasic eye surgery, did she find her true calling. After surgery, she wanted to paint the leaves on the trees – which she had not seen for some time. She wanted to capture light on canvas. She sought out an art teacher and has attended private lessons for several years. She started with landscapes and now adds sports scenes and portraits of people and pets. Her paintings have been shown in several art shows in Southern California.
