About the Artist
Nancy A Bauer – Artist Biography in Brief
Nancy graduated with honours as a Fine Art Major from the University of Guelph in 1977. She went on to achieve an Honours Business Administration Degree before becoming a Registered Nurse.
In 2000 she re-entered the Art World when she began to work with the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario in the Best Practice Guideline (BPG) program. For 10 years she contributed to BPG development in
a variety of ways, including providing Medical illustrations for many of the BPG publications.
During the same period of time Nancy began to paint and draw in her spare time. She has since become well known in many circles for her Watercolour Portraits and Wildlife Paintings.
In 2013, Nancy joined the Windsor Essex County Plein Air Society and has developed a real love for this art form, especially, for Winter Plein Air. En Plein Air is a French expression, when translated, means “in open air”. It is a term used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Plein Air poses challenges not seen in studio work and has become a passion for this artist. Nancy has begun to work in Acrylic as a direct result of needing a product that could better tolerate cold temperatures.
Nancy is now a full-time visual artist. See more of her work on Facebook at “An Artist in Search of Excellence”:
