Nancy Reed Jones is an award-winning artist living and working in the beautiful Hudson Valley. Nancy was trained at the Huntington Art League on Long Island where she lived most of her life.
She owned her own mural business for many years on Long Island and painted murals for the cancer patients in the hospitals there. Her murals were painted directly on the walls in the patient’s rooms where they could be viewed from their beds. These murals were used for “Guided Imagery” which is a technique where the patients get so engrossed in the scene that is alleviates their pain.
Nancy has developed “Art For Relaxation” classes to help people in recovery from addictions and serious illnesses. Relaxation techniques such as soft music, flowing fountains and aroma therapy are used to help people relax and enjoy the process of learning to paint. Nancy now teaches acrylic and oil painting in her home studio in Balmville, New York and is also a painting instructor at the Wallkill River School of Art where she was a member of the Board of Directors for several years.
In 2013 Nancy was chosen to receive the “Champion Of The Arts” award from the Orange County Arts Council. She was also voted #1 acrylic artist in the region in 2010along with receiving an award for her plein air painting from Plein Air Magazine in 2017.
Ellenville Regional Hospital is located on Route 209 in Ellenville. For more information about Ellenville Regional Hospital, please contact (845) 647-6400.
