Artist Statement:

Nancy Ludi Frankenfield

b. 1950-

Findlay, OH


Art for me is self-revelation.  Art making has been a consistent practice throughout my entire life.  Drawing and painting have provided endless hours of creating and providing insight into who I am as a person.  I enjoy painting in Oils because it is an expressive medium . Capturing that image or putting together a composition in dry or wet drawing medium satisfies a need to record an image, as I perceive it.

     My art is influenced by the great masters in art history, especially women artists like Kathe` Kollwitz and Georgia O’Keefe.   In my travels I have visited art museums in Italy, France, Greece,  Great Britain and here in the USA.  Other influences include plant life from the natural world, and people.  I feel most like “me” when I am surrounded by nature, whether it is at the ocean or viewing birds at my backyard bird feeders. 

Exploration of various subject matter continues to inform my paintings and drawings.  I go deep to find subject matter that best expresses an intimate memory, or feeling that I have about some object, nature or person.
