Nancy Fly is a South Texas oil painter, fiddler, accordion player and dog owner. She spent much of her working life in the music business in Austin, Texas, but now resides in Harlingen, Texas where she works in her studio and pursues her art career. Her work is in private collections across the region and the U.S., and she exhibits both locally and across the state. Her volunteer work with humanitarian organizations in the Rio Grande Valley is an important part of her involvement with her community.
Her painting is inspired by her deep roots in the expanses of the Texas landscape, having grown up on a ranch outside of San Antonio, then moving to Corpus Christi in her teens. Her love for the outdoors, and painting outdoors, shape her creative energies. She considers herself a contemporary impressionist and an evolving abstract painter, as she’s recently been exploring abstraction as a way to convey difficult emotions not easily expressed in words.
