Nancy Gray Ogle has been described as an artist who “captures the innermost being in the eyes of her subjects”. Whether it is in the penetrating gaze of a wolf or an expressive glance of a golden retriever, Nancy imbues real-life personalities in each of her subjects.
The artist attributes this to the many pet portraits done early in her career. Her love for drawing animals became a life-long passion; a journey that brought her recognition as a wildlife artist and an illustrator of animal books for children.
With delicate realism ,Nancy’s pastel and acrylic paintings are faithful to the animal’s appearance capturing absolute likeness that evokes emotion through familiarity.
A resident of Muskoka since 1986, Nancy continues to be inspired by the animals and the images seen throughout our woodlands and waterways.
