Nancy Bergmann

A lifelong interest in portraiture came early for Nancy Bergmann. At age twelve her portrait was painted and, with that, the desire to become an artist was born. She taught herself to paint by copying the faces on album covers and then started formal education with a B.F.A degree from Miami University (Ohio). Next, she earned an Arts Specialist Teaching Credential from University of Wisconsin (Madison), while teaching portraiture and drawing at the local Technical College. At this time, she was often called in to render Police Identification drawings from eye witness reports as today's computer programs did not exist. Although her career path changed, to Art Gallery management, she continued to draw and paint and attended workshops with Wolf Kahn, Daniel Greene, Marybeth Mackenzie, John Asaro and Albert Handell. Locally, she studied with Ken Goldman and Jeff Watts. Throughout her career Nancy has had illustrations published, participated in exhibitions, garnered awards and her art work continues to be commissioned and collected with great enthusiasm.
