Working with ink and watercolors, Nancy takes a whimsical, impressionistic approach to landscapes, botanicals and paintings by the sea.  “I paint what I feel – the colors behind the colors, the feelings behind the subjects.” Nancy’s most recent works include a wildflower series, and a collection of intricately patterned paintings based on vintage fabrics, quilts and kaleidoscopes.

Perrotti has studied at Ringling School of Art & Design in Sarasota, FL and has participated in the Mt. Gretna Juried Art Show and the Central PA Studio Tour. Her work has been represented at Lititz Framing and Fine Art, The Gallery at Lebanon Picture Frame & Fine Art, Miss Morgan’s Mercantile in Bethel, and other local galleries in the Lebanon, Berks and Lancaster counties.



By The Sea: I love the smell of the seaside – salty, sweaty, coastal colors that make me happy!

In The Garden: Organic elements, elements of nature – forms that repeat, flow, grow, wither and die. A constant, cyclical frenzy that occurs over and over again throughout the seasons – throughout a lifetime.

Kaleidoscopes/Vintage Series:I love paisley and vintage fabrics.” This series started when my mother asked me one day if I would like a tablecloth that she had found in her basement. It was my Nana’s tablecloth I remembered from days gone by. It gave me the fuel I needed to create art incorporating paisley patterns that turned into kaleidoscope-type pieces. Definite memories from my “vintage youth” – that tablecloth tugs at my heartstrings every time I see it.
