Isbell Arts

After graduating from Humboldt State University,with honors and a bachelor's degree in art, Nancy Isbell began her career at Sea World designing gifts and souvenirs. She traveled to the Virgin Islands in 1974 where she worked at an advertising agency as a graphic artist and illustrator. In 1976, after completing a teacher credential for teaching art, instead of teaching she began painting large works on restaurant walls, traveling all over the United States.

Since 1980 Nancy has been providing artistic services to clients: Murals, Trompe' l Oeil, Faux Finishes, Carousel Restoration, Signage, Illustration, Watercolors, Oils. In addition to producing artwork, she has been teaching seminars and classes in art techniques to adults and children in private lessons, summer camps, and in the public schools.

Visit these pages and look at the sampling of the various projects completed over the years. The work ranges from canvas paintings, to large murals. Nancy has traveled extensively to restaurants and homes around the country, decorating walls with her own style of scenery and trompe l’ oeil.

Her favorite challenge is to create a mood through the use of her own imagined idyllic settings. Some of the tangible results are in the form of murals, found in private residences, schools, and businesses. There may be an open window painted on a wall, sometimes just a faux finish and a few well chosen areas of detail are all a space needs. If you would like information about having your own custom artwork created, send an email to info@nancyisbellarts.com
