Check out another room where she frames her work, creates mugs, coasters, metal prints, puzzles, and any other products she can add her art to. The third room and the hallway gallery showcase the finished artwork and art pieces that have all been created in her studio. This artist loves to share what she does and would be happy to have you visit.



Nancy Vince - Happy Art

Before becoming an artist, Nancy lived on a hobby farm and created an award-winning garden on the coast which has given her much inspiration for her whimsical artwork. After moving to the Okanagan, she became a caregiver to her mom and needing some “me time”, attended a “Zen” doodling class at the Vernon Community Art Centre. She discovered a whole new world of “happy art” which she creates on illustration board or paper with pen and alcohol inks. Her work is full of bright, beautiful colors and she loves to have the viewer look for things beyond what is plainly visible. She is an ACNO member and loves being a part of an active artistic community that gives you the opportunity to share friendships, to learn, to work, to display, to teach and to heal.
