                                       Boston, MA, 1943

                            Original Watercolors, Pastels and Oils

Nancy St. Lawrence received the basics in painting at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the
Vesper George School of Art. However, after many years of plein air painting, she considers
herself self-taught in the mediums of watercolor, pastel and oils. Nancy has studied with and was
inspired by Royal Academy artist Don Stone and the well-known pastel artist Albert Handell.

As a young woman, she spent summers painting in the well-known art community of
Provincetown, Massachusetts. Many artists like Sam Barber from that group have gained
recognition in the art world, as has Ms. St. Lawrence.

In the late 1960’s Nancy opened her first gallery in Salem, Massachusetts. In the late 1970’s she
moved her studio and gallery to Kennebunkport, Maine, which is now considered the oldest
gallery in the area. She is a founding member of the Art Guild of the Kennebunks.

After painting in Taos for 20 years, Nancy made the decision to make her home and studio in
Taos where she now paints full time. She travels back to Kennebunkport for an annual solo show
where her work continues to be sought after by collectors.

The romantic colors of sunset and dawn are the colors of her palette. Early morning and later
afternoon walks are the spirit of her compositions. Nancy now paints on location in Taos as well
as Maine, with landscapes of both areas now being her focus. She continues to produce many
commissions – her forte’ being large concept pieces of unique and unusual sizes including large
diptychs and triptychs.

Her watercolors, pastels and oils are in private and corporate collections worldwide, including
such collectors as Sally Struthers, Roy Scheider, George H. W. Bush, (1980 First Day Cover for
President Bush), Andrea Mitchell, and a continuously growing list of over 2,000 collectors.
Currently her work can be enjoyed at Grimshaw Fine Art – an established gallery featuring fine
art for everyone, located at 132 Kit Carson Road, Taos, N.M. 87571 505.758.4949 *
