Nancy Mckie

A British artist who lives and works in Cumbria, Nancy Mckie’s paintings have a naïve sensibility that belies her distinctive style and delicate use of colour. Flora and fauna are familiar themes, lines and spots recognisable motifs, and she achieves the stunning tones and “imperfect” finish that elevate her compositions by painting on discarded surfaces such as cardboard. While McKie’s style and materials may be simple, her work has a beauty that is anything but.
