Nancyanne Cowell, BFA, MBA, LFC
Fine Arts Honours, (With Distinction)
Federation of Canadian Artists
Born in Ottawa, Nancyanne Cowell grew up in the farmlands, lakes and greenbelt-country of southern Ontario. Cowell made a life-altering decision to complete two degrees at the University of Victoria. She studied fine arts, business and ecology. This complexity profoundly affected her contemporary approach to painting, as her progressive style is both experimental and referential. Cowell's illuminated ecoscapes of living ecosystems are filled with the cyclical nature of life and loss, and resonate with sensuous vibrations. Her artistic instincts merge from a past teaching career, specialized in sustainability marketing. After a rewarding educational career, Cowell turned and embraced her life-long passion for painting, as a professional artist dedicated to her ecoscapes. Life has its way of calling out. For her it was the call of unstoppable paint to feed and restore our soul.
Cowell attended the University of Victoria and earned a BFA in Painting, With Honors and With Distinction; while undertaking studies in Environmental Philosophy. To further inform her artwork, Cowell continued her understanding of society, and earned an MBA degree. She is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Cowell is peer-recommended, published and academically book-selected as an influential artist of inspiration and motivation, for her provocative ecoscape-paintings and life journey with the land. She lives with her family in the rural-seaside town of Cordova Bay, British Columbia.
