After a long and fulfilling professional life in health care, Nancy Dirubbo is now focusing on her passion for art. She paints in the style of traditional realism and has studied with Johnnie Liliedahl and Elizabeth Robbins. Preferring oils, she uses light and color to capture the serene in a still life and the dynamic energy in landscapes.
Influenced by her homes in both the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and the coast of Maine, she also draws on her travels throughout France, Italy, Germany, Russia, Lithuania, the Azores, Cuba, Kenya, Finland, Sweden and the Dominican Republic and by the many well-known and not so well-known artists she has met along the way. She attended French Art School in the Limousin and painted plein air at the same locations as Monet did in the Creuse Valley.
She is a member of the New Hampshire Art Association and the Boothbay Region Art Foundation.
She received third prize in the Lakes Region Art Association’s annual art show in 2017 and has exhibited in the Belknap Mill and Frates Canal Street Studio, both in Laconia, NH and Vynn Art Gallery in Meredith NH.
Her work can be viewed online, at the galleries and by appointment at her studio in central NH.
