Nettye Lamkay| Pastels

Nettye is a self-taught representational artist who works in a variety of painting and drawing mediums, but primarily with pastels. As a life-long people watcher, an avid birder, and a nature enthusiast, she attempts to capture the everyday beauty in the subjects that move her: the light, seasons, and settings in the natural world; birds; and people in their sculptural forms, moments, and gestures. 

Although starting her artistic career late in life in 2015, she is very happy to have exhibited, sold paintings, and won awards in a variety of local shows and art leagues. She currently splits her time between Albany, NY and Newport Center, Vermont. Her art work reflects both city scenes and the joy of Vermont landscape.
