Artist Statement:

New Horizons

Life is constantly evolving. New opportunities present themselves at every turn, each with its own unique invitation. Which will you accept? 'New Horizons' is the result of just such an invitation—to travel through landscapes of possibilities, to reveal inner potential yet to be explored. This series encourages the viewer to surrender to the beauty and strength of optimism at every turn.

Before embarking on any journey, it is worthwhile to pause and reflect on our personal priorities, so as to stay balanced. I have found that simplicity is vital. In these works, I capture my new horizon. Focusing on the monochromatic, without distraction, enabled me to experience a feeling of calm despite the textured sea of endless options.



Nancy Brandsma was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1975. Since 2003, Nancy has received professional training in a variety of media through the Ottawa School of Art. From that moment forward, she has dedicated herself to the plastic expression of oils. Compelled yet again to comply with another caesura, in May 2009, she left her position of administrative assistant to pursue her passion in visual art. She is currently represented by Alpha Art Gallery in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. She has also exhibited at many Ontario art exhibitions, museums, and festivals.
