Like many artists, drawing and painting was a part of Nancy Welter’s early childhood. Some meditate and do yoga to de-stress their lives. Drawing and painting has served that function for her. It is a part of her heart and soul. She loses time and place when she delves into the creative process.
• Since the early ‘90s, Welter has studied watercolor, charcoal, graphite and soft pastel at the Art Students' League in Denver whenever her day job allowed. Within the last four years, she settled on soft pastel as her medium of choice. Presently, she is working on a wide range of landscapes, wedding commemorative portraits and still life.
• She has received a 2014 pastel award ribbon at the Greeley Art From The Heart Show, and was also juried into the Mile High International Exhibition in 2014 and 2015 by Albert Handell and Liz Haywood Sullivan. She has been juried into the 24th National Pastel Exhibition in New Mexico receiving the H. K. Holbein Award ribbon. She received an honorable mention award at the Pastel Society Colorado Member's Show at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in January 2016. Welter is looking forward to selling and showing her artwork in galleries and festivals.
