Nancy Adelis joined the Artisans in October 2014, and she exhibits her love of animals in her artistic specialty, custom pet portraits. She paints in acrylics and creates her art using pet photos. She also enjoys committing to canvas the landscapes and homes of the lower Cape Fear region. In addition, Nancy has been juried by the Artisans in photography and you can find some of her work at the St. James Community Center and the Artisans Gallery.
Nancy, a native of Brooklyn, NY, moved from NJ with her husband 8 years ago. She worked full time in her own HR business till the end of 2013 when she semi- retired. “The creative call has run in our family for 3 generations, and now I finally have the chance to answer that call through my art,” says Nancy. She credits her sister Gail, a well-known NJ artist, for encouragement and guidance.
Besides the Artisans, Nancy is very involved with the St. James Service Club, the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office, and the Brunswick County Teen Court.
