About the Artist
O'Toole - Canadian Artist
Resident of West Vancouver B.C. www.nancyotoole.com
A wife, mother, grandmother and former nurse, Nancy travels extensively with her Irish born husband Eric.
With a generous spirit and a zest for life she has the unique ability to capture on canvas the very essence of the places she visits.
International companies, charitable foundations etc., have come to recognize this attribute (See David Foster Gala below) and Nancy is in constant demand for the use of her images.
Her work is highly recognizable by her dynamic palette!
Be well informed?she is "fearless" in her use of colour!
Represented by major Canadian Galleries, Nancy has numerous Solo and Public Exhibitions to her credit and is sought after and collected by Corporate and Private collectors at home and abroad.
A popular instructor in Acrylics?"Have brush - will travel" (no blarney), Nancy teaches with the same enthusiasm that she applies to her own painting.
In Sept 2009, she will be teaching a second workshop in the beautiful Andalucian area of southern Spain, sponsored by "A flavour of Spain" Learning Vacations! (See events for more info) and Website: www.aflavourofspain.ca
A trip to the Vendee area of France is also planned in conjunction with Spain in 2009.
DAVID FOSTER AMORE GALA
It was indeed an honour in 2006, to have one of my images on a wine label for a very special wine called "Amore". This wine was created by Vineland Estate Wineries for the David Foster Event "Amore" with Andrea Bocelli, and held in Niagara Ontario.
Vineland Estates Winery hosted a luncheon for attendees of the concert and several Tuscan images of mine were displayed and for sale to raise money for The David Foster Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of the special "Amore" wine went to the David Foster Charity foundation.
Selected images of Nancy's paintings are reproduced by Canadian Art Prints, and are available world wide.
She is presently represented in Canada by:
Adele Campbell Gallery, Whistler, British Columbia
Gallery 223 Nanaimo British Columbia
Lando Gallery, Edmonton. Alberta.
Peninsula Gallery, Sidney, British Columbia
