Nancy Sewell


As an artist, I find that nature is my inspiration. I am interested in painting flowers and natural living things as an art form. I use vibrant watercolor hues and textures to portray nature in general and as I envision it. Some of my paintings would be called "Botanical Portraits".

l grew up in Los Angeles with a love of art, flowers and gardens. My creativity was encouraged at a young age, and continued into my college education in fine art and career as a commercial interior architect. In school, I designed jewelry, built furniture, honed my craft in drawing and painting. Now, I am focused on shapes and forms, light, shadows and colors I find in nature.

During my career as an interior architect I designed commercial offices for global corporations such as Microsoft, Toyota Motor Sales, and Warner Bros. and public organizations such as NASA, US Air Force, and the State of California.  As the Global Director of Interior Design and Workplace Strategies for Hewlett Packard Corporation, I designed their offices in over 60 countries around the world.

Now, I live with my husband in Palos Verdes Estates, surrounded by the glorious gardens and landscapes of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. My watercolor paintings are modern botanical portraits of flowers in my garden, and landscape scenery from my travels around the world.
