 Welcome to Hughes Fine Art 

Nancy-lynne Hughes has been painting seriously for over forty years.

 She loves her studio and relishes plein air (outdoor) painting opportunities. The local landscape is a never-ending  source of inspiration for Nancy, and she particularly enjoys those moments when the changing light turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.  These breathtaking moments are what she aims to capture in her work.

Although acrylic is the current medium of choice Nancy is also proficient in watercolour, oils, drawing, pastel.

Nancy loves to teach others to paint. She offers classes, workshops, and painting retreats for beginner to advanced painting enthusiasts.

Nancy’s works hang in collections in Norway, Sweden, Germany, Australia, United States of America and Across Canada.
