Nancy Seiler

United States

Born in Akron, Ohio, Nancy Seiler received her Visual Communications degree from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1981. She is a Golden Artist Educator for Golden Artist Colors, teaching art workshops from her studio in Missoula, Montana and abroad. Seiler has exhibited her acrylic paintings and botanical illustrations since 2002. In the summer of 2014, she co-owned a successful pop-up gallery in Bigfork, Montana. "I am inspired by colors and textures in nature, especially native plants and landscape. Working in fluid acrylics provides me with an element of spontaneity. I start painting on a wet canvas, pouring colors, letting the paint and water move and blend. I tilt the canvas to create more movement and continue to build up layers of color. Creating art this way is always an experiment. The final art usually is something completely different than what I initially had in mind."
