Nancy Clayton
The Woman Behind the Dark, 2020

Charcoal on paper, 50 x 70 cm

Nancy Clayton has created artworks around a range of themes but it quickly became apparent that her skills were particularly suited to portraiture. She is able to imbue each subject with fantastic expressions alongside a natural sense of gravitas and poise.

Nancy is using charcoal and chalk to make large scale monochrome drawings, exploring light and shade while experimenting with creating texture and form. Using photographs of ancient sculpture as her source material she has been creating dramatic portraits of unknown people.

Nancy has been working in the Intoart studio since 2019
