Nancy Glacier knew she always wanted to be an artist. At the young age of 8 years old she began to paint with oils after her grandmother recognized her potential and bought her her first set of oil paints. When she was a teenager Nancy and her family moved to Wyoming where she fell in love with the rugged western terrain.

It was during her time in Wyoming that Nancy met and was mentored by artist, Adolph Spohr. He taught her how to paint like a professional and how to observe her subjects and to self correct if necessary. It was after this training that she developed a desire to paint animals "hair by hair". In order to develop her skill to do this, she took hands on anatomy classes that enabled her to complete a portrait of an animal from it's bone structure to it's muscles to it's hair. The animal then came to life on her canvas.

Today Nancy enjoys much success as one of America's most talented wildlife painters. Her original works are featured in one of America’s leading galleries. Her paintings have also been featured at prestigious art shows throughout the country, and two of her works hang in the famous Museum of Church History and Art in Salt Lake City.

As for her personal life, Nancy and her husband reside in a beautiful and idyllic area in Nevada. She has a spacious studio that she works out of in order to create her amazing paintings and continue her journey to paint the "entire picture". Nancy is surrounded by beautiful mountains to paint by and her passion in the way she paints and the way she lives are inseparable. Enjoy some of her beautiful paintings below.
