Nancie's approach to paintings stretches color to its limits. Sometimes the subleties, other times the vibrancies of intense palettes. "The excitement of color abounds in the simple subjects around me!". This excitement returns in her abstract themes as well as her impressions of travel subjects. While primarily interested in painting, Nancie has also done extensive work in Ceramics, Jewelry and Serigraphy.
Mother of three daughters, wife, Artist and Designer, Nancie has been exposed to and involved with art most of her life. Her Father was an accomplished Artist, as is her sister and her husband, Lorenzo.
In the Sixties, Nancie lived in Europe with her husband, an Officer in the Air Force, during which time she was active in art and showed her paintings in many exhibits, including one-man and group shows in Military Headquarters and Officers Clubs in England, France, Texas, and Ohio. As a result, many of her paintings are in private collections throughout the United States and in Europe as well as locally. From 1979 until 1987 Nancie worked with her husband in their own design business, Foncerrada Design Associates, where they did Graphic Design and also Interior Design projects. In l987 she returned to painting, full time, to pursue her own special interest in Fine Arts, and in particular painting in Oils, Acrylic and Watercolor.
