Nancy Silvia

The Artist

Growing up near the ocean in Connecticut, Nancy claims one of her earliest visual memories is of the horizon line, and earliest influence as an artist the marine paintings of New England. Drawing and painting were a primary activity since childhood. Nancy earned a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA in Painting from Yale University.

Professional memberships include American Society of Marine Artists and Signature Membership in Pastel Society of America, Pastel Society of New Mexico, and Plein Air Painters New Mexico. Nancy has been awarded residency grants at The Ragdale Foundation in Illinois and The Ucross foundation in Wyoming. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums and included in public and private collections in both the USA and Japan. She recently had shows at Gallery Tokyo Eizo in Tokyo and The Coryell Gallery in Lambertville, New Jersey.

Nancy lives in Santa Fe, NM and is represented in New Jersey by The Coryell Gallery, and by Rabbet Gallery in New Brunswick.
