Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration

“I don’t remember when I started drawing; I only remember always doing it. And it didn’t matter if it was a pencil, a crayon or a stick in the mud, anything was fine with me,” Nancy Hilgert laughs. Earning a BFA double major in Drawing and Studio Art from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Nancy loved graphite, intaglio and lithography most.

Two themes dominant in Nancy’s current work are captured in two bodies, Nature, Wood and Stone, and Ocean Things.  The artist travels to photograph nature and historic architecture, as well as collect objects for the subject matter of her work. Renderings polished lava rock and sea objects have been developing rapidly since 2009.  “I love subtle color with graphite, some of it applied and some coming from the paper itself.”  Nancy uses multiple weights of lead layered with other drawing media to bring simple things to vibrant life resonating with photo realism and story.

Founder of Women Artists of Middle Tennessee and TheGreatLesserKnown.com, Nancy has enjoyed juried membership in organizations such as the National Association of Women Artists, Inc., NYC, Xanadu Studio, Scottsdale, AZ and The Tennessee Artisans Market, Dickson, TN. This award winning artist loves working on commissions and inspirations for galleries, collectors and competitions.
