Nancy Holleran

"Life is filled with great experiences. Ones that make us smile; ones that touch our hearts. My creative process utilizes photography and an associative process to create the painting's feeling. Norman Rockwell is an inspiration. A quote I love: “Commonplaces never become tiresome...we just need a new view."
