I am available to create a personal piece for you or your home. I work from images supplied by you. Or a one of a kind piece created through the collaborations of our imaginations.
Whether it is a special piece to finish the decor in your home or to capture the essence of a loved one, it is my honour to create a painting especially for you. Each piece is unique and pricing is too. Contact me to discuss the detail of your project.
Pearl and Jimmy
Oil on canvas board 11" x 14"
...When my dear friend Pearl showed me a b&w photo of herself and her beloved horse Jimmy, from the 1940s, I wanted to memorialize that moment in time for her in a special way.
I immediately thought of Nanci. I just knew she would capture the emotions, nostalgia and depth of the relationship between this young prairie woman and her horse.
The painting arrived safely, carefully wrapped for its journey from Ontario to the west coast. I was simply thrilled and awestruck by the painting. It was exactly as I expected and more. The painting was glowing with life and vibrancy...pictures cannot do justice against seeing the real thing in person.
Nanci works intuitively and follows her creative instincts. Her skill with colour blending and brushwork Is beautiful ...combined with her natural eye for composition and perspective, and her own depth of emotion, she brings a sense of deep spirit and reverence to her work that has a spark of divine essence behind it. - Louise Whyte
"Intimacy" was created for a ocean front beach house in PEI. Inspired by Sable Horses and the relationship between my client and her late husband. Watercolour graphite on paper.
... "I commissioned Nanci Miranda to do two works of art for me, both were from photographs of dogs. She captured both animals 100% and I will treasure them forever.
She is now working on a drawing of Sable Island Horses for me which I am really looking forward to seeing.
Once Nanci is given a commission she works in a very timely fashion and updates you as she works. I will certainly have nanci do other works of art for me in the future. She is a very talented artist." - Mary Clarke
