About the Artist:

Nancy Boren’s first painting, a watercolor, was done at age 12 while sitting next to her artist father, James Boren, as he painted at the Grand Canyon. Today she works in oil depicting a variety of landscape and marine subjects, and is often captivated by scenes in which the figure fills the canvas. Bright sunlight, interesting silhouettes, and twilight are recurring themes in her paintings.

Boren received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Abilene Christian University and is inspired by many, many artists including Jane Peterson, Childe Hassam, and Elizabeth Forbes. Boren’s painting “Aloft in the Western Sky”, which features a cowboy at the top of a windmill, is part of the permanent collection of the Booth Museum of Western Art in Cartersville, Georgia. She has also exhibited at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, the Gilcrease Museum, The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Center in Oklahoma City, and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Show at the National Arts Club in New York. Her paintings were used in the feature film “9 Months” and the ABC TV show “The Benefactor.” She was one of five finalists in the state of Texas for the design of the Texas Quarter in 2004. Recent publications include  feature articles in Art of the West Sept/Oct 2017 and Southwest Art October 2015.
