Nan Venhuizen

Nan Venhuizen has enjoyed drawing and painting her whole life, but in the last years painting in thick, impasto oil paint has been her preferred method. In that regard, her paintings look somewhat different online than in person as photographs do not adequately show the heavy texture of her paintings.  She prefers rural themes as she grew up on a farm, lived the majority of her life in rural South Dakota, and has a great appreciation for the beauty of the rural landscape.   Only her larger paintings are pictured on the South Dakota Artist Alliance website.  She does, however, do many small paintings for fun and preparation for larger paintings .  You may view these small paintings and purchase  them very reasonably through her personal website
