Nanette grew up in rural Oregon and completed her BFA with an emphasis on printmaking at Oregon State University. She spent the bulk of her career as a Graphic Artist and became a boutique letterpress printer along the way. Her primary design focus is logos/identities along with wine labels and packaging.
In recent years she has begun developing a new body of artwork pulling from her past experience as a fine art printmaker while developing new skills as a painter. Her work is gestural and energetic, consisting primarily of monotype prints and paintings with a focus on figures and portraits. A large component for the inspiration in her work is derived from black and white photographs from the 1930s-50s. Many of these photos have faded with age allowing for a loose interpretation of the imagery with a nod to nostalgia.
She has been featured in numerous solo, invitational and juried exhibitions nationally and is a William Park Studio member. For more information about her work, to inquire about commissions or to join her email list contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
