Nancy Fletcher (b. 1976) comes from Lincolnshire in the United Kingdom. Developing an admiration for discipline and creativity at an early age from rural living, it was her father’s love of his work and his motivation to nurture their surroundings that helped shape her ideas of beauty, happiness, and hard work. Nancy entered The Edinburgh Art College to study Fine Art Photography at age 19 which successfully led to a professional career in London as a freelance photographer for a number of years.
Having previously studied art in Florence at age eighteen, Nancy returned in 2002 to focus her study on Fine Art and Classical Representational Painting which she has loved ever since. She has studied at the Charles Cecil Studios and The Angel Academy of Art in Florence as well as with Jacob Collins at the Water Street Atelier and The Grand Central Academy of Art in New York City. She has shown her work at galleries in the USA, UK, and Hong Kong and has participated in major exhibitions such as the BP Portrait Award, The Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and The Portrait Society of America. She currently lives and works in southwest London where she paints commissioned portraits and still-life pieces.
