In 1986, Nancyjane Huehl moved to an abandoned farmhouse, near the junction of I-90 and Highway 83. It brought her close to the prairie where so much of her inspiration has come.
Distinguished by a classic use of color notes and composition her works have an emotion of place and time. Her preferred medium is oil paint; however, she is fluent in most mediums and subjects, working either on location or in the studio. Her current residence in Sioux Falls South Dakota reflects the artists' life, as she is also an avid art collector with a passion for art history, music, and the outdoors.
"Among the artistic influences of my work are the writings of Harvey Dunn- An Evening in the Classroom, and Robert Henri’- The Art Spirit. What is often noted in my work is that it leans towards American Impressionism and Representational lines. Both best give me the foundation I need to express the feeling of life.
In an effort to give back to my community I have donated original artwork to numerous not for profit organizations of these are the: Washington Pavilion Arts Night, Brookings Area Arts Council -Evening for the Arts, Saint Mary’s Foundation-Pierre SD. The gifts of these donations are selected for both the maximum benefit of the organization- and the community involved.
