Nancy Boren’s first painting, a watercolor, was done at age 12 while sitting next to her artist father, James Boren, as he painted at the Grand Canyon. Since then her work has grown to include original print making and oil painting. Figures, both western and otherwise, remain her favorite subject although she enjoys forays into landscape and plein air also.
Boren’s work is included in Texas Traditions by Michael Duty and Susan Halsten McGarry and Brushstrokes and Balladeers and Reflections of the West both edited by C. J. Hadley. Her painting, Aloft in the Western Sky, is part of the permanent collection of the Booth Western Art Museum in Georgia. In 2016 she was awarded the Bronze Medal at the Oil Painters of America National Show. Boren has also exhibited at the National Arts Club in New York, the Gilcrease Museum, The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, and the national juried shows of the Outdoor Painters’ Society and the American Impressionist Society. Boren is a Master Signature member of American Women Artists. Her paintings were used in the feature film 9 Months and the ABC TV show The Benefactor. She was one of five finalists in the state of Texas for the design of the Texas Quarter in 2004. When Nancy is not painting or speaking to art groups, she loves to read mysteries, walk her dogs, and collect antique circus toys.
