Nancy Staub Laughlin [Certified Visual Artist – Skillman, NJ]
Nancy Staub Laughlin is a Side Arts Certified Visual Artist from Skillman, NJ.
Nancy Staub Laughlin, an accomplished, New Jersey based artist, has created a new concept of the “still life” working with pastels on paper and photography. Nancy’s newest series, which she refers to as “assemblages,” incorporates the photograph into the pastel drawing. These dynamic, layered, and juxtaposing assemblages allow the viewer to enter her world of color, light, dimension, and beauty from a different perspective.

Her most memorable highlight was being reviewed by the late Sam Hunter, an art critic who found her work “refreshingly unique.” This is a common theme among many of her positive reviews. She offers a different approach and passion to drawing. Nancy is consistent in her vision…one can always recognize her signature style no matter how much she has changed or grown.
