Artist's Statement

The great American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once said,  "The Earth laughs in flowers...." Texas artist Nancy Medina, CAE, has found a way to express that statement through her art.  Nancy is an award–winning artist and art instructor for the Dallas Arboretum whose oil paintings are in homes and private collections around the world.   She is known for her bold, impressionistic backyard flowers and large container gardens that are immediately eye–catching.  She is described by American Art Collector as "...one of today's best floral and botanical artists."

Nancy's love of art and gardening originated on her childhood farm in Scurry, Texas, where her parents were organic gardeners.  Her earliest memories are of standing barefoot beneath 11 foot sunflower stalks in her family's garden.  Nancy studied art history and illustration at the University of London and oil painting and color theory at Texas A&M University.  Today she resides with her husband and their 4 pugs in Flower Mound, Texas, where she paints daily from Flower Mound Art Studio.

Nancy has worked professionally in design and publishing for over 20 years.  Her original oil paintings have been featured in print and Web publications and on the covers of magazines.  Nancy is a member of the prestigious Daily Painters Gallery, the original international gallery of 150 artists who produce new daily works of art for collectors across the globe.  Her work is represented by galleries in Texas and California.  Nancy is the Managing Editor of Visual Language magazine, and a signature member of Contemporary Fine Art International.  She is a featured artist and flower painting instructor for the Dallas Arboretum, which has used her paintings on the covers of their promotions and awarded her in their annual juried Garden Gallery competitions.  When she is not in the art studio, Nancy is a volunteer for Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue, the largest pug rescue charity in the nation.
