Featured Artist

Nanci Yermakoff

Nanci Yermakoff

Nanci Yermakoff’s watercolors walk the line between representation and abstraction. Inspired by open spaces of ocean beaches, Midwestern lakes, and prairies, she explores light, space, and above all color in her ongoing series of Horizon paintings. Working with the simplified elements of sky, land, and sea she layers multiple washes, typically twelve to twenty or more on each piece, to progressively build depth and gradual transitions of color. Recent work focuses on the expressive power of color rather than the literal interpretation of the landscape.

Nanci is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society.
