Nancy van den Boom's Profile

About

There is something special about standing outside in the fresh crisp air, listening to the sounds of nature as my paintbrush rubs against the blank canvas. The transformation of white to color to image is magical, and I absolutely love being an artist especially when I am painting “en plein air” (outside)!

My name is Nancy Van Den Boom, which translated to English means Nancy of the Tree, and I am the owner of my own art gallery of the same name. I first discovered oil painting back in 2004. Until January 2015 I was completely selftaught. From January to April I had on line 1 on 1 lessons from a former art teacher, living in the USA.

All of my paintings are inspired by the beauty of the world around me, and to be able to take those sights, transform them into color on canvas and then share them with the world has been a dream come true…

I am a local fixture of Amsterdam and actively participate in a weekly art market. To me, connecting with others is the true goal and pleasure of my work. I love seeing people light up when they find a piece that truly speaks to them, and I am always grateful when they walk away with a vibrant business card in hand. I am also honored to have a worldwide audience for my art, and have sold both paintings and wearable art to customers in the US, England, France, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, Turkey and the Netherlands.

When I am not busy painting the world around me, I am spending time with the love of my life, my husband Cor, my friends, family, children and animals. I like to joke that my animals found me because I am passionate about the ethical treatment of all animals. We have had my horse Theo since 2011, my dog Jacky since 2014, and a few cats that live more around us than with us!
