Long Island, NY
Nancy Stahl, a native of Long Island, New York, studied art at the University of Arizona, the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, and the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Her work has appeared in many formats, from billboards for Dreyer's Dreamery Ice Cream to stamps for the U.S. Postal Service. International assignments include the German magazine Der Spiegel. She had a one-woman show in 1990 at Lustrare Gallery in New York City and is included in the ongoing Society of Illustrators exhibit, “Women Illustrators, Past and Present.” In addition, Stahl chaired the Society of Illustrators Annual Exhibition in 2001. Her work is represented in The Illustrator in America, 1860-2000 by Walt Reed and Rolling Stone: The Illustrated Portraits edited by Fred Woodward. An instructor in the Independent Study Masters Degree program at Syracuse University, she has also taught illustration at the School of Visual Arts and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Nancy Stahl's design style incorporates bold colors, stark contrasts and visual simplicity to produce eye-catching layouts that balance representational images of the people, objects and landscapes with elements of pure design.
Nancy's Intuos®4 professional pen tablet is key to her workflow, as it gives her the feel of working with traditional fine art tools like brushes, markers, pens and pencils combined with the benefits of an all-digital workflow.
