Meet Nancy Ferry
Nancy Ferry is a Dallas-based artist who lives with her husband, son, daughter, two dogs, and a bearded dragon. Having lived in both urban areas and rural areas, her exposure to different cultures has provided the perfect inspiration for her to rediscover the art of capturing the essence of people, animals, and nature.
From an early age, Nancy has demonstrated her ability to capture organic forms, may it be from photographs, moving objects, or still life. Originally focused on graphite portraits, she has since branched out to watercolors, color pencil illustrations, silhouette paintings, and even note cards.
Ferry Creative initially began as a way for Nancy to raise funds for the adoption of her and Richard's first child. After the adoption was finalized, she stepped away from drawing for a year to focus on being a mom. After a year, the pull towards art became too strong to ignore. Following the birth of their second child, she realized that she could find balance with art and parenthood.
In addition to running this website, Nancy has worked with several groups and organizations (including Virgin Hotels - Chicago) to bring her art to people all over the country.
Nancy's "main" job is teaching 4th and 5th grade students twice a week at a wonderful hybrid homeschool in Greenville, TX. The rest of the week, she is homeschooling her kindergartener (Davis) and preschooler (Veronica). Art time is reserved for when her kids are down for not-so-quiet-time.
