Nancy Yanaky

“With my paintbrush, I enjoy evoking memories and feelings through the exploration of colour, light and design."

Nancy is an impressionist-style landscape painter who enjoys experimenting with colour. She finds inspiration in her kayaking trips to Georgian Bay, in her travels to destinations by the waterside, as well as in her garden.

Nancy studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design focusing mainly on printmaking, fabric design and enamel on metal. For most of her career she has worked creating art with high school students who have developmental disabilities. Nancy returned to her artistic roots, inspired by workshops of Canadian landscape painter Gordon Harrison and Hamilton painter Julia Veenstra.

Nancy’s work has been exhibited in the Apprentices show at the Gordon Harrison Gallery in Ottawa, at Synergy Artisan Gallery in Napanee, as well as at the Art Among the Ruins Show in Newburgh.
