About Nancy Slocum
Address and work:
Nancy Pallan began painting and drawing at an early age when her father, a professional photographer and artist, encouraged her abilities. She received private instruction and later earned her degree in art education. Although she practiced numerous techniques and worked in a variety of media, it is her detailed, realistic style of watercolor that makes Nancy’s wildlife and botanical studies so popular. Nancy finds ample subject matter in her native northwestern Pennsylvania. Nearly 350 species of birds migrate here, and numerous wildflowers populate the local creek beds. Her paintings often require several hundred hours of work since this intricate technique allows no shortcuts. Nancy’s beautiful results make her hard work well worth the effort.
