Artist's Vision and Technique

Nancy Jean Overbury has dedicated herself to exploring and expressing nature's profound beauty and emotional depth. Her artistic journey began in her youth and has been driven by a desire to evoke powerful emotions through her work. The Laurentian mountains, lakes, and forests are not just subjects in her paintings; they are integral to her soul, inspiring each brushstroke and layer of texture.

Overbury’s work is unique in its approach, utilizing wood panels to support the high-relief texture, ensuring durability and depth. She begins with thin glazes and meticulously builds up layers, adding gel mediums to acrylic colours to maintain form and create a dynamic range of textures. Her tools include palette knives, spatulas, and oversized trowels, which she uses to bring her vision to life with precision and emotional resonance.
