About Nancy

Artist Statement



Nancy Coleman strives to reinvent art. An example is her Painted Text Weaving, which she first created as a 25-foot outdoor mural for Georgetown in 2014. Through the use of layers of hand-brushed cursive text, it is designed to evoke a right-brained visceral reaction to language, typically considered to be left-brained focused. For decades she managed her design and marketing firm in San Francisco/Silicon Valley, always reinventing communications to stay ahead. Coleman currently works mainly in acrylics, encaustic, encaustic mixed media, photography, and teaches encaustic in her studio. She was a partner in a fine art photo gallery in Half Moon Bay, a founding photographer at a teaching studio in Los Gatos, and Chair of the Palo Alto Public Art Commission before moving to Seattle in 2011. Coleman's works are in the collections of the cities of Seattle, Palo Alto and Seatac, at Harborview Medical Center where she taught art for years, in private homes and offices in both hemispheres, in Vioure Live-in Galleries and at Fogue Studios & Gallery, Seattle, WA.
