Nancy Brandsma

Francophone artist Nancy Brandsma is an abstract impasto oil painter originally from Montréal, Québec, Canada.

She has been actively involved in the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada artist community since 2009. As a member of she has participated in multiple art projects across Ontario in several recognized galleries. She is proud to have been part of Ottawa's first ever Nuit Blanche in 2012.

She received professional training at the Ottawa School of Art. She is currently represented by Alpha Art Gallery in Ottawa where she had her 1st solo show in March 2020. Her works can also be seen at Marten Arts Gallery (Bayfield, Ontario, Canada) and in many private collections.

Her tools are simple: spatulas and the very humble fork to create a texture reminiscent of icing on a cake. What matters most to her is the dominance of the texture and color tonality to excite the senses, like a decadent dish. Each painting is served with emotion and mystery directly from her subconscious mind.
