Nancy Seamons Crookston 

Oil painter Nancy Seamons Crookston is a multi award winning painter who has been recognized by her peers and national magazines for her exceptional talent.

Nancy's love of children, the ocean and color is apparent in her art. She aims to draw in the viewer and make them feel that life is good.

Her paintings are often described as peaceful and calming.

The California based painter is attracted to the human figure in moments of stillness and reflection. She loves to capture glimpses of tenderness between mother and child and the innocence of children engaged in quite play.

Nancy has long been drawn to the Old World feel of the European countryside. To suggest this quality of a simpler time, Crookston sometimes dresses models-often her own daughters and grandchildren-in the colorful scarves and long dresses of country peasants.

On other occasions, wonderful painting ideas walk up to here, like the time her young granddaughter came into the artist's room, sat on the bed and started reading a book.

In 2002, the Nancy Seamons Crookston was inducted to the Oil Painter's of America as a master signature member in honor of the wide recognition of her art, prints and posters.

Nancy Seamons Crookston's early training for her art, prints and posters includes five summers studying with Russian artist Sergei Bongart in Thornton, Idaho. These workshops put Nancy on the path to sold-out exhibitions in Japan and a few select U.S. galleries.
