"Nancy's art is amazing. Against an abstractly patterned background vibrant with color and rich in texture she creates very realistic figures. In some of her paintings, the figures absorb the playfulness of the negative space; in others the mood is more pensive. Always there is motion. Movement is a strength in her work, especially in her dancers. Their faces and bodies are more about storytelling than perfection. Emotion is inherent in her subjects; the viewer feels it."
Lynda C., 2018
"Nancy's paintings are musical, lyrical and always full of movement. Her love of life and magical moments are at the heart of each piece, even the deeper narratives that tell of harsh conflicts are hidden inside lusciously colored patterns." Alaine D., 2018
"Nancy Calcutt is a totally professional artist in her control and ability to express herself in paint. She focuses on images, often of women, within a series of paintings to convey variety and depth. Her paintings are lush with color and movement and create a cohesive body of work that the viewer will recognize as hers." Maureen U., 2018
"Nancy Calcutt's art is unique. The textures, colors and subject matter of her art for me tells a story. I have several pieces of her art in my home. I get lots of compliments on the art work that I have. So if you are looking for some very contemporary unique art for your home Nancy Calcutt, is the artist for you. I promise you won't be disappointed. She is extremely talented." Tina M., 2018
