Nancy Tilles Displays Her Art at Whole Foods

Nancy Tilles displayed her sea life oil paintings at Whole Foods Market in Wellington from September 1 - November 30, 2011. Nancy is an award winning artist, well known for her portraits and paintings, which are often of marine life, and tropical trees and flowers. She is influenced by living in South Florida for over 30 years.

Nancy's work has been commissioned publicly and privately numerous times. Her underwater series entitled "Sea eScape" was purchased by the City of Sunny Isles in Miami Beach. Community participation is important to Nancy and she regularly donates work to various charitable organizations. In 2011 her painting "Gemstone Hawksbill Turtle" was chosen to represent the Art Fest by the Sea in Jupiter with a commemorative poster. Her portrait of a young rider jumping her horse in “Sheer Determination”, was awarded best of show and chosen as the cover of “Palms West Almanac” Magazine 2004. She is presently licensing many of her images to be used on various products.

On October 21, we held a reception in her honor at Whole Foods Market. Her newest 9'x5' triptych inspired by the Water Lilies at McKee Gardens in Vero Beach was unveiled and displayed that night only.

Over 50 people attended the reception. Here are WAS members Joanne Baker MacLeod, Suzanne Redmond, Leslie Pfeiffer, and Linda Rovolis enjoying the evening.
