Nancy Angelini Crawford




"A View To Behold"





"Through my paintings, I try to convey a sense of time and place.  Rather than painting an exact replica I prefer to capture an atmosphere, a sense of being.  It's my desire that my paintings bring something to the surface in everyone, that my memories and interpretations of life can somehow intertwine with the lives of others.   From the whimsy of cityscapes, to the deliciousness of sunsets and waves, to the magnificent grandeur of mountains high, that is what I love to paint and why."


Nancy Angelini Crawford grew up in New England.  A love of the ocean, harbor towns and crayons were her favorite things.  At a young age, Nancy was accepted to the Famous Artist School by drawing replicas of cartoon characters.  That was her beginning of her understanding of compositions, concepts, instruction and critiques.  


        In her late teens, Nancy moved to Florida for a winter reprieve as a glass blower and soon met her

    husband to be.  While there, she also worked as a studio assistant to a prominent artist of West Palm



        In 1981 an extreme change took place.  Nancy and her husband settled in Alaska.

     Living the frontier dream, they lived off the land, built a cabin and started their family. Building their

     home, working jobs and raising children took precedence.  For a while, art was on hold.


        After residing in Wasilla, Alaska for over 30 years, and her children raised, Nancy began taking local

     watercolor classes and then moved on to study under contemporary masters throughout the country.

     She studied with such painters as Kevin McPerson, David Gallup, Dean Larson and others.  Nancy

     continues to travel and take workshops to always push her art to the next level.


        Gleaning bits from each artist instructor Nancy's work now carries her own voice.

    No matter what the medium, (watercolor, pastel or oil) her goal is to know the techniques well,

    apply them, and then deliver them with her own style.


        Alaska's beautiful scenery, her past by the sea and travels are the inspiration for most of her work.
