Plein air painting and detailed hand painted sculptures in clay are Nancy’s passion. The Lowcountry is so rich in beauty and character that one medium just isn’t enough. Gullah life is a favorite subject for Mitchell’s sculptures, she draws on the memories of her youth and the history of Hilton Head. The preservation of the native plants, animals, people and landscapes are a very important aspect of her oil paintings. Nancy has been making her living doing murals and commissions over the last 30 years by striving to achieve her clients desire in a visual composition of rich color and raw emotion.
