About the Artist!
Nancy Engdahl, a retired middle school English teacher, originally from Massachusetts, has summered in Waterford since 1965 and has lived there year- round since 2000. Her favorite activity with her school students was guiding them to paint pictures and ideas with colorful word descriptions, using words as they would a brush.
She developed an interest in drawing and painting at a very young age, taking lessons in oils, pastels and watercolors. In her paintings, Nancy tries to capture the beauty that surrounds us in Maine, from the western foothills to the coast and islands.Her work currently hangs in Gallery 302 in Bridgton, Maine (www.gallery302.org). Locally, her work has been shown in Western Maine Art Group shows and in the Matolcsy Arts Center in Norway as well as libraries, restaurants,banks, and hospitals in Maine. In gallery art shows, Nancy has won several awards for her work as well as many Purchase Prize Awards at summer outdoor art shows.The Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce chose her watercolor "Field of Lupines" for one of its fund-raiser calendars.
Nancy sells fine art giclée reproductions of most of her work. These high quality giclée prints are reproduced on the highest quality archival art paper. The print is indistinguishable from the original and will never fade. All limited-number prints are signed and numbered under the matting which is a nicer presentation than leaving a border. Prints can be ordered in any size and can be purchased plain, matted , or framed.The giclee prints are professionally framed using only the best archival materials with a frame that will compliment each individual piece of art.
