Being creative involves being fearless, being vulnerable, being open to inspiration in each moment, and taking risks.

Nancy Pendleton took one cold winter semester off from her studies at Michigan State to spend with a friend in sunny Phoenix. She never went back! Over her many years of living in the Valley of the Sun, Nancy developed a deep connection and appreciation for this city in the desert.

Her recent series, ‘Our Urban Desert’ expresses the contrast of a thriving city and the vast Sonoran desert, and how they co-exist in harmony and make 'The Valley' a totally unique place to be. The artist mixes her trademark graphic style with vibrant colors and rich textures to tell her story. “I can’t imagine living anywhere else."



I feel lucky to work in my wonderful studio in the home that I share with my husband, Bob Smith, and my 4 precious dogs (all adopted from the Arizona Humane Society). For over 20 years I have been represented by Wilde Meyer galleries in Scottsdale and Tucson. Being Creative is truly my passion and I love to share it.
