Nancy Marsden. Born in Boston, MA, Nancy Wyeth Norris attended Belmont High School followed by Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio. After graduation, she married Stanley Marsden. They lived in Ohio until moving to Tamworth, NH, in 1978.
Nancy studied drawing with accomplished artist Cindi Swanson. Her pen and ink drawings were used by the Tamworth Arts Association for the cover of their silver anniversary calendar of events. The Tamworth Community Nurses calendar also featured one of her drawings.
Study with artist Ernie Brown began experimentation of detailed still lifes. Nationally known artists Judi Wagner and Tony Van Hasselt introduced her to loose flowing watercolors in which she worked for several years.
Nancy is now finding that she enjoys painting in oils. Plein air landscapes where light becomes such an important factor in creating her work is now her favorite form of artistic expression. “With so much natural beauty surrounding me, there is always another view waiting for my interpretation.”
Her work has been exhibited in the Mount Washington Valley Arts Association’s exhibits, the annual shows given by ArtWorks and the Arts Council of Tamworth, and a variety of local libraries. Presently, her work may be seen at ArtWorks Gallery in Chocorua, NH.
