Nancy Benoy - Shape Play Delights I

Shape Play Delights I

Nancy was born and raised in Port Credit, Ontario and now lives, creates, and teaches art in Hamilton, Ontario.  She received an honours degree for Sociology & Anthropology attending the University of Guelph. A study abroad program through the university allowed Nancy to live and work in London, England, where her passion for art and design was awakened and rekindled.  No longer content as an onlooker, she pursued her passion upon returning home to Toronto. She studied at, among others, Ryerson University, O.C.A.D. and George Brown College.

Nancy’s art practice and teaching practice is rooted in self expression, experimentation, and process. The craving to breathe life into a crisp white surface sparks her creative process. Materials at hand play an integral role.  Saturated inks, luminous watercolours, lush pastel and rich acrylics are the materials as if which speak to her, find their voice on the canvas and paper. Colours, texture, layers and movement are captured. Nancy is constantly exploring, evolving and challenging herself with materials and ways to capture and feeling, a mood, a memory or yearning on the canvas.

Nancy is an advocate for art in the community, facilitating accessible, playful and process based art workshops at various locations in the Hamilton area including, her home studio, Dundas Valley School of the Arts, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Centre3, Shalom Village and schools, both HWDSB and HWCDSB, and has achieved and Ontario Artist in Education grant (2015-2016/2016-2017) to bring her passion of the arts into elementary schools in the Hamilton area.
