Author Info

Nancy Tankersley began her career as a portraitist and later entered the gallery scene with figurative paintings of people at work and at leisure. Her paintings of figures on the beach became popular in galleries coast to coast. Currently as she searches for the unpredictable, Tankersley moves between landscape, figures and still life. She believes that the same underlying principles can be found in all good paintings, regardless of subject or style.

Active in the current plein air movement, and a founder of Plein Air Easton, she travels worldwide participating in competitions, judging and teaching. In 2018 and 2019 she was invited to be an instructor and demonstrator at the Plein Air Convention and released her first instructional video with Lilliedahl Videos. In 2016 and 2017 she was invited to exhibit at the prestigious Masters Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club in NYC. Recent honors include Award of Excellence at the 2018 American Impressionist Society National Juried Exhibition, Best Architectural Painting at 2018 Plein Air Easton, Best of Show at Parrsboro, Nova Scotia International Plein Air 2018, Best of Show at the Lighthouse Plein Air Festival 2017 and the Dickinson Award for Best Painting by a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society 2016 Annual Juried Exhibit.

She is a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society, the American Society for Marine Art, and the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters and also holds memberships in the Washington Society for Landscape Painters and the Salmagundi Club. Founder and Director of the Easton Studio, a workshops facility begun in Easton in 2010, the artist mentors and teaches workshops and also sponsors workshops by nationally known painters. www.nancytankersley.com
