Nancy McLean – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Nancy McLean

Nancy McLean grew up in Sydney, NS and following her graduation from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, had a rewarding career as a visual art educator in many schools throughout Cape Breton. These days Nancy has more time to work on her own art and watercolour is her medium of choice. She is drawn to contrasts of light, texture and space be it the continuous change of a flowering cycle, wave movement or beach compositions. Her yearly gardens and journeys to Cape Breton coastlines provide ample settings and inspiration enabling her to explore these elements in her painting.
