Wildlife-herd animals, landscape

Wildlife painter, Nancy Glazier, specializes in big game herd animals and is fascinated by the awesome power of her subjects. She was born and raised in Utah, where she spent much of her free time drawing animals.

As a youth she won summer scholarships to the Art Center of Los Angeles. By the time she was a teenager, and the family was living in California, Glazier had decided to forego a college education.

Rather, she rented a guesthouse and began to paint with a fervor but at the time sales were slow. She then met a collector who offered her $100. for an entire month’s work, when her rent was $50. a month. Glazier’s first big break came when she spent a month painting a still life and brought it to an art gallery.
