Nancy Peach grew up along the Chesapeake Bay in the Maryland countryside.

This award-winning artist is a master of composition, while creating the soft, luminous paintings she is well known for. Most of her work is done around these rural areas with a preference for tranquil sites at sunrise or twilight. Nancy says, ”There is something magical about this time of day with the light and shadows giving the scene a peaceful atmospheric quality.” 

She received her formal art education from the Corcoran Museum’s School of Art in Washington, D.C., the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA, and The School of Art and Design in Silver Spring, MD.
