Profile: Nancy Boren
Some of Nancy Boren's earliest memories are of watching her father, artist James Boren, paint. James Boren (1921-1990) was a western artist, and the first Art Director of the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. He was the recipient of 21 gold and silver medals from exhibitions of the Cowboy Artists of America. His art has been exhibited and collected across the United States, in Beijing and in Paris. At age 12, Nancy Boren painted her first painting, sitting next to her father as he painted the Grand Canyon. Today, she, too, has received multiple awards and honors from the American Impressionist Society, the Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, the National Oil and Acrylic Painters and more. She has achieved Signature Member status of the American Impressionist Society and the Oil Painters of America and Master Signature status of the American Women Artists. She wrote to us about growing up in such an artistic family.
