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.

ALL OF NANCY’S PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF HER ART WORK GOES TO “RESTORED ANEW MINISTRIES”.

    God Bless The USA – Nancy Conant

    $1,200.00

    God Bless The USA

    Framed 26 x 20

    Pastel

    The inspiration and setting of God Bless the USA is the Fort Worth, TX Stockyards Rodeo. Being originally from California, we have a lot of Cali folks passing through and staying at the Conant B & B. The Bed & Breakfast stay comes with several excursions; one of which is the Rodeo. As an animal lover, I’m not a huge fan of rodeos. However, we figure in order to offer our guests the full Texas experience, we attend the rodeo and allow them to check that off their bucket list. There is one part of the rodeo I love. The part I love is when the pretty lady rides around the arena to the song, God Bless the USA. I get a lump in my throat every time. Here’s a snip it of it from YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULlf4UKwuBc

    Cool Draft

    Framed 42 x 34

    Pastel

    I LOVE Draft Horses; formally known as a Clydesdale. They are so beautiful, yet powerful. I picture myself standing in the snow, being sprayed with cool snow flakes kicked up from his enormous hooves. The wind brushing across my face as he gallops by. Simply majestic!

    Horse Eye – Nancy Conant

    $840.00

    Horse Eye

    Framed 18 x 14

    Pastel

    This gypsy cob foal is so fascinating to me. As an artist, the eyes are the most intriguing feature on people as well as animals. I can’t wait to get to that part of the painting. Sometimes, I will “do” the eyes first; then it seems it’s calling out to me, begging to be completed and made whole.

    Kindred Spirits

    Framed 26 x 20

    This beautiful couple of Friisians originate from the Netherlands. The tenderness shared between these two is so beautiful. I love to witness animals expressing love towards one another.

    You can’t tell me they don’t have feelings! They most certainly do!

    Back some time ago, I had a wonderful opportunity to go to Wings of Hope Equine-therapy. This place offers horseback riding to people with disabilities. “My horse” was Lark. A beautiful and gentle girl with the softest coat! She was just amazing and lovely! So, like I do with that which inspires me – I painted her. This is my sweet LARK.

    My Girl Lark

    Framed 22 x 21

    Pastel

    This is my second painting of Lark that I did. She makes a beautiful subject to paint. Lark was my Equine-Therapy horse for folks with disabilities.

    I went to the ranch one day specifically to photograph her. It was a blast! This usually docile, gentle girl started prancing around us, giving us quite the show! . I could hardly keep up with her.

    I guess she has some spunk after all.

    Framed 20 x 26

    Pastel

    This white Arabian is a beautiful mare and is from a large heard of Arabian horses from Tarnawka Stud in Poland. Oh how glorious she must have been in her prime. The sun setting behind her is so symbolic to me; how we all, at one point in time, will have the sun set on our lives. May we be as graceful as she.
