Artist Registry

Nancy Smyth

Although formally educated in fine art, my first career was in the corporate world. I am now focusing on my new path as a portrait artist that specializes in equine and canine art. I am also challenging myself to grow as an artist by utilizing different techniques and mediums and by also incorporating landscapes as background in my artwork. 

I received my first horse as a graduation gift at 17 years old and have owned dogs from the age of 9. This has provided me the ability to observe them in their natural state along with their unique form of communication between humans and other animals. Each horse and dog individually display characteristics relating to their breed, conformation, movement and temperament.

I strive to depict a realistic picture of my subject that will convey their being and invoke emotions from my audience along with depicting their unique connection with their owners. I find it challenging to not only capture their beauty but the essence of their soul as well. I remain committed to honing my talent in order to bring enjoyment to people who view and acquire my art.
