NANCY Leshinsky recently changed her name to NANCY MAJORS.  Many have collected her work under her previous name. She is  an established artist currently living in Bellingham, Washington.

Nancy has exhibited in national as well as international juried exhibitions. Her work is in the Northwest School tradition with an emphasis on representational abstraction and Asian art. Early in her career, she did studies at the home owned by celebrated northwest mystic painter Morris Graves. In 2006 she won the Bellingham Arts Commission city wide competition for a weathervane design titled "Beet Spirit". It’s a 9'x4' beet that sits atop Bellingham's Depot Market Square clock tower. In 2009 she was accepted to a National Juried Exhibition at Axis Gallery juried by Janet Bishop the curator for SFMOMA.

She loves to create, be it a garden, a painting, a piece of knitting or her miniature, hand painted jewelry “watches” that she calls “lose all track of time”. She uses a limited palette and scumble as well as glazing techniques for the paintings in her “watches just as she would for a larger painting. She adds found objects and upcycled beads and glass to her jewelry to create a finished, one of a kind piece.  Her work has been used in place of rings exchanged at weddings and are well suited to special occasions.
