Nancy's whimsical bird painting entitled "Bird Watchers" was selected to be enlarged on commercial vinyl as one of 43 works placed on buildings along four blocks of Sewells Point Road in Norfolk to create a DRIVE-THROUGH ART GALLERY. Almost 500 works were submitted by 98 artists in this competition. The reproduction of her painting is approximately 16 sq. ft. This exhibit will be up for five years. It opened on November 4, 2017.


  • The Artists Gallery (in the Virginia Beach Art Center, located at 532 Virginia Beach Blvd.) My wall here changes frequently as paintings are sold.
  • D’Art Center (740 Boush St. in Norfolk). I have a wall display here as well as paintings for sale in their Online Gallery Shop. To get to the Online Gallery Shop, go to the D’Art Center website.
  • The Gallery Shop (420 High St. in Portsmouth). My display here changes about every 5 months. (Temporarily closed)
  • Three of my paintings are regularly on display and for sale at The Main (Norfolk’s 4-star Hilton Hotel at 100 E. Main St.). This exhibit by D’Art artists is best seen in the daytime in the corridor to Selden Arcade and in an adjacent space in the hotel. Both are to the right of the front door and near the door to the garage.


Because I have moved from a house to an apartment and cannot take most of my paintings with me, I have SLASHED PRICES on150 works. Please choose which paintings you would like to buy by clicking on ORIGINAL COMPLETE LIST OF PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS or the SALE: AVAILABLE WORKS LIST under the rotating works on the first page of the Art Gallery. Use whichever list seems most helpful to you. You can see photographs of all the paintings in my website Art Gallery. They are organized under the same headings. You do not have to commit to buying until you have seen and approved of the actual work. You can buy on layaway the few more expensive ones. Paintings can be delivered anywhere in Hampton Roads.
