Nancy BOREN ✿

Nancy Boren is a American artist, born in 1955, Texas. Nancy Boren’s first painting, a watercolor, was done at age 12 while sitting next to her artist father, James Boren, as he painted at the Grand Canyon. Sunlit figures, both Western and otherwise, are Nancy’s favorite subjects, although she also enjoys plein air landscape painting and the occasional still life. She is especially inspired by color and pattern.
She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Abilene Christian University and cites the influence of notable traditional painters such as Sargent, Sorolla and Fechin. Boren's paintings, Aloft in the Western Sky and Four Corners Cowgirl, are part of the permanent collection of the Booth Museum of Western Art in Cartersville, GA.
She has also exhibited at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, the Gilcrease Museum, The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Center in Oklahoma City, and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Show at the National Arts Club, NY. Her paintings were used in the feature film 9 Months and the ABC TV show The Benefactor. She was one of five finalists in the state of Texas for the design of the Texas Quarter in 2004.

Nancy has received two gold medals from the AWA, a bronze medal from OPA, and in 2018 won Best of Show at the American Impressionist Society. Her work is included in the books Texas Traditions and Brushstrokes and Balladeers, as well as in the permanent collection of the Booth Western Art Museum.
