What makes Nancy’s courses so valuable is her background in existential psychiatry as well as her understanding of the creative process. She’s able to coax out of you, gently and non-judgmentally, your true authentic self. And she makes you believe and trust in yourself along the way.
Having come from a background in graphic design before taking up painting, I was very familiar with the principles of design that make for a good painting, but there often came a point in the process that caused me to freeze up. It could have been encountering the dreaded ugly stage, or even having created something beautiful part-way through. In both cases, I was afraid to go further, either from fear of working through that messy stage, or for fear of ruining something good. For me, now, the process of painting involves risk and experimentation, and I do it with joy and without fear of the unknown. I thank Nancy for helping me get to that state.
