Nancy Catherwood (NC) Magnusson reinvented herself seven years ago, transforming from potter to painter when she relocated to Albuquerque. She learned by painting incessantly, combined with classes, gallery visits and critiques by experienced artists, but most of all painting obsessively. Known for the textures in her work, she creates three-dimensional paintings on canvas as well as painted wall pieces on clay. Her art is shown at local venues. Nancy says: “My abstract paintings draw from a colorful inventory of life experiences expressed in swaths of color, textures, intentional and unintentional shapes. “
