About Nancy Crawford

"The creative process, like a spiritual journey, is intuitive, non-linear, and experiential. It points us toward our essential nature, which is a reflection of the boundless creativity of the universe." —John Daido Loori

Nancy CrawfordCreativity colours every aspect of Nancy's life, her relationships, her service as a teacher and coach, her expressions as an artist, writer and public speaker. For three decades her energies have been focused on the creative process - exploring its depth and mystery - in her own life and work, and in helping others to foster their own creativity enjoying lives of greater meaning, purpose and joy.

In the spring on 2015, Nancy published her first book, Getting In! The Ultimate Guide to Creating an Outstanding Portfolio, Earning Scholarships, and Securing Your Spot at Art School. In that book Nancy shares success strategies for artists in a process that her students describe as life changing and provides a clear framework outlining how to become the ideal art school candidate, create with passion and enjoy the process.

While Nancy enjoys working in a variety of art media, her primary areas of focus for the past several years have been encaustic painting, drawing, calligraphy and photography. Nancy earned her masters degree from the University of British Columbia, and also studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. While studying in Italy Nancy focused on the drawing techniques of the Italian masters and Renaissance art history. After living in Italy she found herself permanently smitten with Italian culture and was captivated by the history and connections with the ancient world, the intimate landscape, the intoxicating tastes and the powerful artist expressions.

Nancy continues to travel to Italy and other global destinations to pursue her own art making, continue her ongoing research and lead groups on Creative Excursions. Nancy currently resides in Langley, British Columbia, Canada with her husband Konrad Breuers.
