Nancy Hogan Armour was born in Bennington, Vermont, in 1955 and raised in California. She has been painting since the age of thirteen. A self-taught painter, she supplemented her natural abilities by studying drawing at Laguna Beach School of Art and Design in Laguna Beach, California. A realist in the medium of watercolor, her subject matter has varied throughout the years. Extensive travel in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean is reflected in her paintings and photography. In 1981 she settled on Chincoteague Island and opened Island Gallery & Gifts. The coastal environment in which she lives has stimulated her, as can be seen by the subject matter she has chosen to focus upon. For seventeen years, she has divided her creative atmosphere between two islands. Chincoteague Island and Vieques Island off the coast of Puerto Rico in the “Spanish Virgin Islands.” Both islands are known for their wild horses, which is one of Nancy’s specializations in her art. In May 2008, she moved to her home on Vieques Island, to live year-round. Nancy opened Luna Loca in April 2013. Her new studio is next door to the Post Office in Isabel Segunda . On Chincoteague Island her paintings and prints are at Blue Crab Treasures on Main Street. On Vieques Island her work can be purchased at Oro Gallery in La Hueca and Luna Loca in Isabel Segunda.
