My name is Nancy Beth Shuler. I am a fine artist working out on my professional art practice since earning my BFA in 2018. I am full of inspiration and newly learned skill. I am currently working on my next body of work for exhibition.
I have painted in oils since a little girl. Growing up in Silicon Valley overlooking San Francisco Bay provided ample opportunity to paint at my easel at any opportunity. Art has always enthralled me to identify what I find beautiful. My passion for life is expressed in music and visual art.
I studied in Italy at La Macina di San Cresci Artist Fellowship in Tuscany. The rich heritage of the world’s artists past and present stimulate me to grow. I express my inspiration through constructing a motif, using primal forms, and design elements. I love to paint commissions and exhibit portraiture, landscape, and abstract in oil paint.
My favorite artists are from the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist era, especially Cezanne, Van Gogh, Monet, Gaugin. I continue to learn from artists past and present, and depend upon The Dayton Society of Artists for support and critique.
My mission is to live the artistic life to express my inspiration with the aim to express my soul and thereby bring happiness and inspiration to others through my work. Thank you for visiting my site, and I hope you enjoy it.
What I Do
I paint commissions, hold exhibitions, and share my art in various community events and competitions.

These lovely quotes express how I feel:
The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.
Art is a microscope which the artist fixes on the secrets of his soul, and shows to people these secrets which are common to all.
A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.
Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
