Nancy Kraus Womack grew up in
Fulton, Missouri. She lived next door to the
Head of the Art Department at William Woods College
and took art class in 7th grade. That is as close
as she got to her interest in oil painting until
nearly 33 years later.
Winston Churchill as her inspiration, she took
his advice and determined
that she, too, would take up painting as a
"joy ride in a paint box". Churchill began
at the age of 40 when he believed his political
career was over. As it was, his career was
certainly not over, nor was Nancy’s
career as a
professional dressage trainer and owner of
Northridge Farm in Platte County, Missouri.
Nancy is mainly self-taught, she also had
the good fortune to study for a short time
with Maggie McCarthy, a juried and award-winning
water color and oil painter now living in
enjoys capturing the colors of landscapes and
water on canvas in their own particular
light unique to wherever that
setting is in the world. Pears are the subject
many of her still life paintings, as well
composed of some of her favorite things—including
wine of course!
paintings are in private collections in Missouri,
Texas, Vermont, New York and Colorado. Her
work has been featured in small galleries
in central Missouri prior to her showing
at Wines by Jennifer.
