Nancy Teague Biography

Nancy Teague grew up in the small western Nebraska town of Sidney. Her youth years were rich with art and building projects, riding her horse, fishing, hiking in nearby bluffs, ice skating, playing the piano and flute, Rotary Exchange Student to Australia, student government positions, and working in her mom's bookstore. Nancy's husband of 45 plus years, two sons, and six grandchildren have rounded out her life with gratitude and precious memories.

Nancy graduated from the University of NE with a BFA in Education. She taught three years in the Lincoln Public Schools before beginning her art career that has spanned four decades.

Her early work was realistic and captured the transforming effects of natural light on old or discarded objects. In 2013 Nancy made a huge shift to Abstract Expressionism, precipitated by internal spiritual dynamics bringing joy and freedom that could not but spill over onto her canvas. Her new strokes of spontaneity, intrigue and intentionality showing reflections and connections have brought depth and excitement to her work.

Over the years her paintings have received various awards and honors. She was accepted in several nationally recognized art fairs, including the Cherry Creek Art Festival - Denver, Colorado, the Coconut Grove Art Festival - Miami, Florida and the Plaza Art Fair - Kansas City, Missouri. Nancy is also a signature member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society.
