JDSTEVENSON GALLERY: "You will be enjoying Nancyanne Cowell's powerful artwork long after you walk away. A gifted artist, she can make her canvases moan — her brushwork is exquisite. Playing with soft and richly thick paint, her luminous paintings linger in profound  beauty and breathes vitality into ones life."     

 

THE GALLERY, at Mattick's: "It's clear with every painting Nancyanne Cowell produces, she's infused every brush stroke with her heart and soul.  Flowing with energy, they are stunning interceptions of our emotional connection with nature." 

 

Stephanie Webb, BA, BFA, MA, Contemporary Art Critic & Writer, SeaSide Magazine:  "[...artist to watch...] Inspiring audiences, Nancyanne Cowell is an influential artist of our time. Her stunning, sensuously vibrant 'ecoscapes' profoundly capture the cyclical nature of our existence...speaking to the fragility of the world as we know it."   

 

Sooke Harbour House Art Gallery: "Nancyanne Cowell's canvases vibrate in the abstract of atmospheric light and the depths of human emotion. Spiritually inspired, her unique approach stunningly captures the transformative quality of nature and our own sense of longing. " 

 

Dr. Ann Dale, Canada Research Chair for Sustainable Community Development, Ottawa: "[Love Of Unforgotten Times] fills me with wonder and love in spite of the loss that the artist knows was part of this integral painting. Nancyanne Cowell's ability to combine the natural and the human world is 'powerfully unique' and makes our world so much richer; combining the intellect with the emotional and spiritual spaces. Her art ‘allows’ us to see and feel our world in a profoundly different way.  This artist remains true to her journey."

She has an amazing talent for illuminating the textures found in nature, while deeply touching the fabric of the soul."


Isabel Cordua-von Specht, Victoria: "I am the lucky soul to have Nancyanne Cowell's painting [Loses Its' Cleated Knot] shining its heart energy into my home, into me. I will first write what I felt...how the painting chose me. When I stood in front of the painting that day, when I first stood unintentionally, my hands came up in a cupped prayerful position in front of my chest. It felt like a sacred motion. I then stepped away.  When I came back, again intentionally, I first felt movement - with my feet planted firmly, my body began to swing, first counter-clockwise, then clock-wise, the swinging became wider and stronger and suddenly my heels began lifting and then kept repeatedly lifting, touching down for only a moment before they began to lift again so that I stood on my tiptoes to the edge of balance.  It felt like I was trying to take off.  When I came back down on my feet, I then felt my chest, a very warm, very soft energy mid-chest, a peaceful, warm, flowing, soothing energy.  I love it. Thank You!"   

 
Stephen Ingle CFP, Financial Advisor, Edward Jones Investment, Victoria: "These are absolutely gorgeous, really impressive!!"
 
 
Sandra and Robert Herbison, Calgary: "It is incredible how a painting - as an inanimate object, can bring such joy and peaceful reflection to the environment of a home. [Tiptoe Through] and [La Guitarra] have done just that. We are enjoying our additions and are so grateful to have found YOU Nancyanne Cowell and discovered the beautifully creative technique and style of your paintings. These two pieces were 'unintentionally' made for our home and have attracted a lot of appreciative attention. Thank you!"

 

Dr. Eric Ochs, Ph.D. R.Psych, Victoria: "I love Nancyanne Cowell's paintings, and I am so thrilled to have discovered them while out biking. Serendipity, and too bad I couldn't have fit all her art on my bike...."

 

Lois and Brian, Calgary: "Thank you Nancyanne, for the joyous soul food brought forth into your creation of [Pond of Vows] to celebrate our wedding."

 

Chris and Woody Knebel, Calgary: "We love our two paintings which we spotted on the wall during your studio tour. Thanks for the beautiful and soulful creativity which shines through!! We look at them every day in our dining room. We get much pleasure from the vibrant woven energy in [Sweet Occasion] and [Smokey Embrace]. The add a dreamy dimension to our home."
