Nancy McIlvaine
Art Consultant - Interior Design- Event Planning




                       I experience immediate gratification from creating art.  That feeling along with a twist of fate is surely the reason I became an artist.  I took my passion for creating to the decorative arts industry where I spent fifteen years working with the leading interior designers. I explored different mediums and began painting on a larger scale with murals and trompe l'oeil.  In 2001 I continued to reach deeper within myself to imagine the world and my art in a hyper realistic, slightly surreal style.  I was launched into what was a perfect fit between my minds eye and the canvas, and I created enough to produce my first show, which was held in Dallas. I continued producing art and work within the design industry until the summer of 2006 when I made the professional decision to pursue my artistic career full time.  Since, my style has continued to veer toward the surreal. I am producing paintings and sculptural collage works that I describe as organic surrealism. I am combining the natural with the artificial to create synthetic harmony.
