Nancy Egan, a lifelong artist, sold her first painting at 15 and began winning accolades. She was taught art and inspired by her father, a Yale fine art graduate. When Nancy was ready for college, he insisted she pursue an engineering degree instead of the art path she wished for. Nancy earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management, but ten years ago she gave it up and switched careers to a full-time professional oil painter. She has a love for still life, landscapes, and seascapes.
