A Closer Look
Nancy Marshburn is an award-winning artist working in pastel and oil in a style described as contemporary realism. Her pastel paintings show the clarity, intensity and luminosity allowed with this medium. Her oils continue the exploration of still life and landscape in a refreshingly different media.Artichoke Heart-beat - 9x12 - Nancy Marshburn

Nancy’s signature work combines her intriguing loves of art and the medical field. Nancy earned a Bachelor of Arts in art and biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, followed by a year in Wales on a Rotary International Scholarship studying medical photography. She attended the Medical College of Georgia, completing a Master of Science in Medical Art in 1984. After working as a freelance medical illustrator for over 20 years, she happily returned to her fine art roots.Transplant - 11x14 - Nancy Marshburn

The effects of light intrigue Nancy. Her paintings pull the viewer towards them with strong dark/light contrasts. A Sally Strand workshop reintroduced Nancy to the still life genre, a natural progression from her medical art. Nancy’s continuing interest in landscape painting is evolving towards more plein air work. The need to work quickly leads to fresh, decisive strokes and the southeast offers a plethora of scenes to paint. Outdoor painting provides balance to her more detailed still life work.

Inspired by the ordinary, Marshburn’s art focuses on a moment of beauty in a complex world.
