ARTIST

Nancy Willis

Artist Nancy Willis lives and works in the Napa Valley. As a painter and printmaker she works with themes of intimacy and social connection by creating series such as The BED, RSVP, the CHANDELIER and TERRAIN. With paint or printing ink, Willis uses an additive and subtractive process to explore how color, light and atmosphere can instill meaning and evoke a sense of place.

Willis has exhibited at the StARTup Art Fairs in Houston, LA, Chicago and San Francisco as well as Sundance, Utah. A solo exhibition of her paintings and prints of Paris titled SAVOR THE MOMENT was recently shown at Chandra Cerrito Art Advisors in Oakland, CA. In addition to teaching at the Napa Valley College, the Culinary Institute of America and Nimbus arts, she leads painting workshops in France, California and Utah.

Willis has been the guest curator for two large museum exhibitions at the Napa Valley Museum: Nourish and Discrepancy/living between war and peace. In 2018, Willis was awarded an ACNV Community Fund Grant for her project Conflict Zone, a collaborative printmaking project with Yazidis from Northern Iraq.
