Nancy Conant began her artistic endeavors at a very early age. “I pretty much wanted to sculpt or draw anything I could get to sit still! I would spend countless hours studying faces in fashion magazines and try to meticulously render what I saw.”

“Like most of us, I love beauty. I see beauty take shape and form in so many things: Animals, nature, people; not necessarily “perfect people” or what the world values and calls beautiful, but the innate beauty that exists in all of God’s creation. When I see something that leaves me awestruck or causes me to do a double-take, I want to capture it and preserve it so that it can be appreciated and enjoyed far beyond that moment in time. “

Born and raised in Southern California, Nancy always knew she was destined to be an artist and hoped somehow she could combine her love for animals with her passion for art. In the late 80’s her love for all creatures great and small led her to a wildlife animal refuge where she donated her time to serve as a volunteer in the compound’s hospital. Later she began working with wild and exotic animals as an animal caretaker and assistant trainer for movies and television. Through these experiences, she developed an awe and deep respect for these amazing creatures.

“Nothing – NO THING WHATSOEVER, can compare to the amazing privilege it is to take a nap with a chimp or go for a walk with a snow leopard, African lion, or bear.” Though she no longer works with lions and tigers and bears (oh my!), she derives incredible joy from being able to paint their likeness.

Today, Nancy Conant’s home studio is located on Joe Pool Lake in Grand Prairie, Texas. She lives with her husband Chris, and two daughters, Rebekah and Meghan. Nancy has over 20 years of art adventures under her belt from college courses to commissions, art studies to workshops, spanning murals to pencil drawings, sculpting to oils and pastels. She counts it a privilege and a blessing to create a fine art keepsake that can be handed down for generations to come, through her commissioned work.

    Fru-Tail Hawk

    12 x 12 Pastel

    Framed - Add 2-3 inches per side

    Whenever I see a hawk or eagle soaring on the wind currents, I just have to stare – even when I’m driving! Yikes! But it’s true. How they glide so beautifully, searching the land for their next meal. Simply stunning! FUN FACT: The Fru-Tail Hawk got its name because it’s a cross between a ferruginous hawk and a red tail hawk. The color of its eyes gives it away.

    This handsome fellow is from Africa. Can you believe that the length of this marvelous creature’s wingspan reaches 159–190 cm (63–75 in)? I am fascinated by raptors. They are so majestic!

    Oh how I love the Golden Eagle. I have a little book, called The Eagle Christian. The author takes you through a journey of a Golden Eagle’s life and draws comparisons to our lives. The symbolism is so profound! The author, Kenneth Price offers insight to many of the trials and growing pains that will be experienced in the life of the eagle and how that parallels our lives as well. I highly recommend the book!

    Beneath the Shadow of His Wings – Nancy Conant

    Beneath the Shadow of His Wings

    24 x 18 Pastel

    Framed - Add 2-3 inches per side for frame

    This painting is loaded with meaning for me. I’ve seen many trials in my life. God has delivered me out of them all. He’s still delivers me today from the trials that beset me. But one thing I can count on and this I know is true: He hides me under the shadow of His wings and protects me from my enemies and is an ever present help in time of need. According to His Word:

    “Wondrously show Your loving kindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings From the wicked who despoil me, My deadly enemies who surround me…” Psalm 17:7-9

    “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield…” Psalm 91:1-2, 4

    I can go on and on and on. What a wonderful Father we have!

    One of my favorite styles of painting is chiaroscuro. It’s an Italian word, meaning light coming out of the dark. Rembrandt was famous for painting in this style. I just love the mystique behind this beautiful horse. I imagine that he’s awaiting his master’s footsteps.

    This gorgeous Friesian mare, Pippi is the epitome of “romantic” as she frolics along the beach. In my humble opinion, the Friesian horse is among the most beautiful horses on earth.

    Special thanks to Katarzyna Okrzesik who provides me with the outstanding material from which I paint.

    Giovane Amore / Young Love – Nancy Conant

    Giovane Amore / Young Love

    18 x 24 Pastel

    Framed - Add 2-3 inches per side for frame

    Naming a painting is always a joy. The name usually comes to me before I even begin the piece. In this case, the image embodied love. What is extra sweet about these two lovers is their apparent youth. You see, the male lion couldn’t be older than two; I can tell this because of the size of his mane.

    So, why the title name in Italian? There’s something about love that brings out my Italian roots. It makes me want to sing about love! If I were fluent in Italian, I suppose I would break out in song in Italian. Thus, we have Giovane Amore, (Young Love). And deeper still, when I observe love, it inspires the love I have toward the people in my life – and I’m filled with gratitude for them.

    In my book, Resurrection Monday, I talk a great deal about the struggles of life; but the “wonder” of the story is that: Love wins! Love eclipses all else. I hope you have a chance to get a printed copy or a digital copy and let God’s Love envelop you like never before.

    Ti amo (I Love You)
