See The Soothing Sounds Of The Sea

Nancy Fabrizio of Floral Park is an award-winning member of several local art leagues on Long Island. Fabrizio’s artwork often depicts the seacoast, with its ever-changing, magical light and delicate hues. She enjoys en plein air painting whenever possible, especially if she is near a rocky coastline and can hear the soothing sounds of the sea. Her palette is often filled with the subtle blues, violets and greens of the ocean.

Fabrizio paints both in watercolor and in oils. Although she has had a deep interest in art since childhood, she spent many years in a fulfilling career providing assistance to victims of crime. She is now able to pursue her lifelong love of painting.

Whether Fabrizio is painting a moody coastal scene, a warm-hued southwestern landscape, or a sunlit city street, she hopes that her artwork will invite the viewer to be briefly transported to the places that have inspired her.

She loves the fluidity and surprise of watercolors and the texture and richness of oils. Recent trips to New Mexico and France — and the unique light and architectural features of each location — has brought a new dimension of color and shape to her artwork.

She is fortunate to have been inspired by, and to study with, many accomplished artists, including Beth Ellis, Howard Rose, Steve Lamposona and Maryann Heinzen.
