About The Artist

Painting headshot.jpg

I first learned to paint under the direction of my very talented mother, Susan Livada, when I was in college. I was always interested in art and design, but the minute I dipped my paintbrush in oil paint for the first time, I was hooked. I studied Biology and Studio Art at The University of Vermont and went on to get a master’s degree in medicine at Yale University. No matter what stage my life is in, I have always relied on this outlet to keep me centered, creative, and engaged. Currently I am working in healthcare full-time, raising my growing family, and painting in my mother’s studio every chance I get. My style is a bit impressionistic and a bit expressionistic. I love to play with color, light, and brushstrokes in a way that makes an object recognizable, but with an element of abstraction and creativity. My subject matter ranges from still-lifes and landscapes to family and wedding scenes. I am lucky to have a wonderful balance of art and science in my life, and I love to find those moments when the beauty of both worlds overlap.  I do accept commissions and would be happy to talk to you about the process. Commissions are generally painted from photographs and require about 2 months to complete. I will work with you to find the perfect photo, size and composition for your piece.  Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss this more. I always strive to make a stunning piece of original artwork that is meaningful, beautiful and can be passed on for generations. Thank you so much for your interest and your patronage,

Nancy Livada
