Creative Adirondacks: Nancy Brossard: A Lifetime Passion for Painting

Nancy Brossard

By Linda Friedman Ramirez

The need to paint, and to paint well, has been with Nancy almost all of her life. She’s very clear that there is really nothing that could stop her from painting, as well as requiring that any painting that leaves her studio is worthy.
