Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey

If you are seeking the colorful spirit of the West, you have found the right artist. From vibrant tipis to confident cowgirls, Nancy captures the strength and beauty of the west with vibrant colors and dynamic Montana skylines. Breathtaking landscapes have been a favorite of both Western and classical artists, so our visitors are not surprised to see red barns peeking from covered wagon prairies with a backdrop of stunning mountain peaks and dramatic thunderhead clouds.  This is Big Sky Country, and the artwork reflects that.

The artist also exhibits an extensive floral collection including poppies, peonies, irises and pansies.  Many of Nancy’s long-time collectors have requested that Nancy continue to paint her signature iris “portraits”, which are now available in two puzzle sizes. Please see our gift page for more information, or call the gallery.

Nancy also enjoys painting wildlife.

Some of the more popular subjects in her art include bison, as well as paintings and sculptures of bears, moose, owls, wolves, fox, sheep, goats, elk, deer, fish, horses, cows, mules, and even a rooster. The inspiration is fueled by personal encounters with the wildlife and ranch animals surrounding them. Contemporary Western artists provide an amazing scope of subject matter.

Nancy’s work reflects places she has visited, from Italy to China and most places in between. She continues to master her craft. Artists such as Nancy live in such an inspirational environment with Glacier National Park only 30 minutes away from lush Flathead Valley and the majestic Flathead Lake.

Whether she is using silk, watercolor, oil, or woodblock printing, Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey is incredibly talented. She has a unique style all her own.
