REPRESENT: Nancy Fabrizio

Artist Statement

I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel and my paintings frequently depict my favorite subject, the seacoast. The mystical and moody shores of a coastline have captured my imagination and provide inspiration to depict the essence of locations such as Maine and Ireland. I am fascinated by the magical quality of light, the delicate hues of the sea and the remoteness of a windswept seashore.

My palette is filled with the subtle blues, violets and greens of water and light. The air around us is always changing, and the transparency of the watercolors allows me to layer color and shapes to reflect the soft changes in the air. The elements and atmosphere which are expressed in my artwork are constant and timeless and offer a connection between the present and the past.

It is my hope that my paintings will invite the viewer to be surrounded by ancient hills, to listen to the soothing sounds of the sea, to feel the mist, see a glint of sunlight within a grove of trees. To enter into a peaceful retreat and be briefly transported to the places that have inspired me.
