Nancy Johnson Standlee, a native Texan from Arlington, loves working in a variety of mediums and taking art workshops and travel. She has lived in California and Virginia and retired in 2000 from the Keller ISD.

Since her retirement she has taken art workshops in Europe, Mexico and the United States in watercolor, acrylic, oil, plein air and collage. Her personal work has evolved to acrylic semi-abstract figurative painting and mixed media paintings with torn paper collage. Nancy uses found papers, magazine pages and hand painted and stamped papers in the collage paintings. She has recently added landscape pieces while painting plein air in New Mexico and California. In January 2012 she traveled to Califor- nia to take her first oil workshop. Her focus is on bright colors and impres- sionist techniques in her paintings seen on her blog and website.


She is an internationally collected artist and has recently had 3 of her works published in Painting with Mixed Media, Guhin and Greenman, @2012. Nancy’s paintings can be viewed and purchased at her online gallery: Daily Paintworks,

She maintains a website and an active art blog and contributes to several other blogs. During the past years she has begun keeping personal and travel journals and enjoys sharing her love of the process with art journal workshops and collage workshops. This summer she has two one day workshops planned in Dallas, one on collage and one for art journaling. She (along with 3 friends) has completed the largest collage commission she’s ever done.. 3 panels that are 4 x 6 foot. Nancy paints with a group of 8 artists who paint col- laboratively, Canvas by Canvas.

Inspiration comes from a library of art books, viewing other artists’ work, painting with friends, art workshops, museums, travel, photos – all that she sees and experiences is a potential for a painting or a journal entry.
