To my knowledge there are not many, if any, of these around. When these are gone, there will never be any more.
[On silk] I [can] really float brilliant color with spirit and gusto. In whatever country her father was stationed, Nancy Cawdrey immersed herself in the culture, and her affection for the arts later led her to study two years in Paris and another five years in Britain.Nancy Cawdrey loves color, texture and pattern. She began her painting career 35 years ago and worked predominately in watercolor. Through her pursuit for texture and passion for color, Nancy Cawdrey discovered the spontaneity and brilliance she could create through painting on silk, a Chinese technique that has been practiced for thousands of years. And, although silk painting is now her medium of choice, she continues to explore a variety of subjects in watercolor, pastel, oil and experimental media. Often, we see a mixture of media in her silk compositions. Through this overlaying of various media she creates buoyant color and texture with her combination of transparent pigment and the shimmer of silk. A colorist with a strong sense of design, Nancy Cawdrey's work always evokes a response, whether she is creating one of her signature western figure pieces, a breathtaking landscape, a quiet corner of Venice, or a vibrant floral.
Nancy Cawdrey moved to Montana 22 years ago and settled near Bigfork on Fox Creek Slough near Flathead Lake where Montana's expansiveness serves as the primary inspiration for her work. She also enjoys traveling to the Southwest and abroad to paint on-site plein air studies. Represented in galleries in Santa Fe, Tucson, Bozeman, Jackson, Cody, and Bigfork, her work is included in invitational art shows across the West. Nancy Cawdrey participates in the annual C. Her work is exhibited in many private and corporate collections across the country and in Europe.
