Nancy Whiteside


I am an Emerging artist living and working in New Westminster.
Since I was very young, my practice has included drawing, painting, and ceramics.
Making Art is in my DNA. My earliest memories involve drawing. I have a clear memory of getting a brand new box of crayons on my 4th birthday. Around age 9 or 10 I started drawing drawing cartoons and caricatures of our family (not always appreciated by my sisters, artistic merit notwithstanding) Many of these drawings still survive and I like to think, are treasured by their subjects.

Although primarily self-taught, I have always looked for inspiration and opportunities to learn from others, a custom I actively pursue today.
Since completing the Certificate in Fine Art at Emily Carr School of Art 2011-2014, I am committed to daily practice and am enjoying my most prolific period so far.
