There is a certain organic beauty and simplicity of living in Italy that can’t be found elsewhere: a love of food, fashion and the way they live their life.
When you think of Italy you always think of love and romance, sun burnished landscapes, colorful fishing villages along the Mediterranean and Adriatic seas, ancient ruins and hilltop castles.
The artworks of Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Tintoretto and Caravaggio, the operas of Puccini and Verdi, the architecture of Florence, Rome and Venice, the contrast of high fashion stores located on cobblestone streets in Rome and Milan, and ancient towns still occupied and thriving on today’s tourism are just some of the treasures of Italy.
I am proud to present a collection of originals and limited editions reflecting my on-going travels and love for this special country. Please join me in celebrating the intense beauty and grandeur of Italy, reflected in my masterpieces.

“The paintings of Nancy Crowley project the emotion and drama of each setting, allowing the viewer to escape into a dream world of the sensuality of Italy. Each painting becomes an experiential opportunity for the viewer. Every painting celebrates the ‘heart-stopping’ beauty found in the regions of Italy, stirring our emotions to celebrate life itself.”
— Arthur Waugh, Professor of Art, Chicago, Illinois
“Remember,” he concluded, “that it is only by going off the track that you get to know the country.”
— E.M. Forester, “Where Angels Fear to Tread”
