Nancy Dunaway 

"My work is a reflection of my life, very eclectic… a curious combination of things often inspired by a glimpse of something natural and then taking a leap somewhere else. I have a very spiritual side and my work always has that component as well. I like to think it tells stories of my journey along the path and, while very specific to me in the making, connects somewhere with the viewer to touch their own story too.

 

I work in a variety of media, loving the exploration of each. Making my art is a dialogue between me and the process and the materials. I begin with a loose notion of something and then put a mark or an image on canvas or paper. I gather materials to assemble, and then they guide me in where to go next. It is a constant dialogue with many changes and surprises along the way.

 

Layers form and weave, revealing some secrets and concealing others, offering little glimpses of things and reflecting my own curiosity and sense of exploration. Everything progresses until it finally tells me "enough!" Then hopefully I have enough sense to stop and let it sit a while. Sometimes it truly is enough, and sometimes it tugs me with just the final little thing it needs for completion. I am usually amazed when the work is done and its secrets revealed."
