Why Learn 3 Secrets Of The Masters Now?

LIke many abstract painters, I started with representational art. As time went on, I wanted to create non-objective paintings but I didn't know how and couldn't find a teacher.

I also struggled with self doubt, overthinking, overworking, second guessing, getting stuck, not knowing what to do, not keeping it fresh and alive, and thinking it wasn't good enough.

Sound familiar? 

When I realized I could stop struggling by making a simple change I'm about to share with you, everything shifted and my work was transformed.

Almost overnight, I went from wrestling with my art to confidently and consistently creating paintings that I loved.

That same year I was invited to co-create Doing The Work Of Your Life: Moving Beyond Fear In Abstract Painting with Katherine Aimone and Audrey Phillips. In this workshop I brought over 20 years of experience as an existential psychiatrist, creator of Creativity and Consciousness™ television program, 22 years of painting, and 7 years of teaching Experimental Painting workshops at Stanford Sierra Camp. 

I'm on fire to share my newfound realization so I can help other artists transform their work as well.

It's my mission to guide artists to create paintings that are expressively alive, personal, confident, meaningful, and full of wonder. 

In all of this, I've realized that painting brings up everything.

Art reflects life.

Indeed, creating art is akin to embarking on the hero's journey described in great literature such as Dante's Divine Comedy.

As artists, you're living your life and yet searching for something...meaning...a feeling of aliveness...mystery....expression.....

And then you're called and you answer the call and you're immediately plunged into the unknown. There are perils in that territory of 'not knowing': self doubt, fear, inner criticism, procrastination, perfectionism, boredom, avoidance, even resignation.

But there are guides to help you face the dangers and this is where I come in. Dante had Virgil. You have me.

I'll help you on your journey to realize that the greatest transformation in your life and your art is the inner work of trusting yourself.  

I believe that as you learn to trust yourself you'll realize that you have everything you need to create the work of your life. 

In this course, I'll guide you through the 3 secrets of the masters: the inner journey of trusting yourself and two technical concepts that make 90% of the difference in taking your painting to a whole new level.

Don’t Take My Word For It

"My yearning to create on a deeper level and a desire for understanding the principles of making good art were answered beyond expectation. Nancy gives the gift of soul work with intuitive abstract art, moving through fear and into the present moment with joyful experimentation. I now understand the path to my best work, to be able to paint with an expressive aliveness, and am deeply grateful for Nancy's genuine care and individual attention. The content is presented sincerely and simply, and is deeply motivating. "

"As for Nancy: I don't know where to start my praise. I think I will start by saying that you are a marvelous person: it shows through in your teaching. You are full of life, full of love of life, and have a deep understanding of the "other." You are a fantastic teacher, and your lessons are so intelligently put together! I can honestly say to you that this is one of the best workshops I have taken! You not only provided invaluable information, with which you opened doors to a new level in painting, but also you led us through with your encouragement & your belief that we can do it. You made it possible for us to venture in new territory & helped us through it!
Thank you! i hope that someday you will have a workshop where we can attend physically!"

"Nancy's course allowed me to experience for the first time an acceptance and love for my art through my mark making and my own style. Not only did I learn about the fundamentals of creating abstract art, but I learned them in a way that was deeper and easy to understand. The weekly lesons, videos, and assignments helped me hone in on techniques through practice. The FB form was an amazing group of supportive artists and Nancy's feedback, guidance, and support were invaluable. It's been the best online course I have taken and completed!"
