NANCY WESTERGAARD (February)
Artist Bio: Nancy Westergaard lives in Sacramento, CA and paints watercolor portraits of people and animals. She graduated in 1977 from the University of California, Riverside where she took oil painting classes along with required classes for her major in Political Science. After college, she took a few design and painting classes at community colleges while working and raising her family. Beginning in 1986, she painted still lifes with oil paints until she fell in love with watercolor painting in a workshop taught by artist Jeannie Vodden in 2008.
In 2014, Westergaard showed her watercolors at Due West Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 2015, she showed in Sacramento, CA at Gonzalez and Associates. In 2016, she became a member of the Artists Collaborative Gallery in Old Sacramento, where she showed her work for a year. In 2017, Westergaard won 2nd Place at the annual Wyoming Watercolor Society competition.
