About Nancy Nicol


This is a photo of Gabriel Beaton, owner and me at ARTNOVA Gallery in Chatham, MA. where I am represented as an exhibiting artist. Shown here: Five Oyster Shells, oil painting 24 x 48.


I always wanted to be an artist and had oil painting lessons as a teenager with Ward Mount who I still consider to be a source of inspiration for my use of color. I attended Friends Seminary, a Quaker School in NYC where art and shop were integral parts of the curriculum. Summers spent on Cape Cod gave me a vast opportunity to participate in its creative milieu, enrolling in classes at the Creative Arts Center in Chatham, Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, the Provincetown Art Association and at Art New England at Bennington College.

Current Involvement

 My domicile home/studio is in Wellfleet and I have a second studio in Dresden, Maine. I maintain a small private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist.

 I am represented by ARTNOVA Gallery in Chatham, MA. and I am an Affiliate Member at Viridian Art Gallery,  New York, NY. I also participate in open, juried and invitational exhibits at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset. 
nancynicolart.com is a virtual gallery for collectors and designed for those who enjoy the ease of an online purchase. There are several Collections including Historic Wellfleet, Just OystersSmall Works, and Waterscapes.


In 2022 I launched NN Boutique,  Coastal Home Goods for bath, kitchen, lifestyle, and décor, featuring my original oyster shell and crow designs.
