Chiaroscuro, Tuscany
By Nancy Freeman

A native New Englander, I am delighted -- since 2009 -- to call Santa Barbara home. I'm a graduate of the R.I. School of Design and the Massachusetts College of Art, with a Masterís degree in art and education from Tufts University and the Boston Museum School.

A former potter, ten years ago I returned to my first love: oil painting. Being of Italian heritage, I've been drawn to visit Italy often. I find the gorgeous hues, colors, and shapes of both Italy and Santa Barbara compelling.

Attempting to capture the magnificence of these landscapes, and the rest of my world, gives me great joy.
