Contemporary impressionism is the best way to describe the paintings of Nancy Paton.  A third generation Texas painter, Nancy’s bold and energetic colors seem to leap off the canvas.  She has a passion for capturing the amazing colors of nature.

Guided by a mother and grandmother who are both lifetime painters, Nancy started her artistic life with childhood lessons from renowned local artist, Simon Michael of Rockport.  A 17 year career as a chemical engineer did not diminish her passion for art.  A lifetime student, she has taken instruction in a variety of arts and artistic mediums.  In the last several years, she has returned to her first love, which is painting.   

While her early artistic passion was high realism, Nancy is currently more interested in the looser form of contemporary impressionism.  She looks for the sometime subtle colors in nature and enjoys bringing them to light on her canvas.  The experimentation with color and form are always exhilarating as Nancy lets the colors and flow guide the creation of each new work.

Nancy works at her shared studio in Dripping Springs.  She paints regularly with the prolific Bunkhouse Gang in Cypress Mill and with her studio partners.
