Nancy Doniger is a visual artist and illustrator based in Brooklyn, N.Y. Her pieces are often figural, fantastical and narrative. She is interested in open-ended story telling, and the juxtaposition of positive and negative, interior and exterior, and fear and whimsy. Her prints, paintings, drawings and paper collages have been shown at many galleries in the New York City area and in New England, and are in private collections as well as in the collection of Zea Mays, in Florence, MA.
As an illustrator, Nancy Doniger has created works for a diverse list of clients, including the New York Times, Unite!, Bank of America, and the Brooklyn Historical Society. She has also illustrated several books.
Doniger received a BA from Rutgers College, New Brunswick NJ, and studied at the Art Students League in NYC, The New York Studio School, Parsons, and SVA. She has been most influenced by the work of artists Béatrice Coron, JoAnne Mcfarland, Faith Ringold, Romare Beardon, Jacob Lawrence, and Henri Matisse, and the writers Alice Munro and Flannery O'Connor.
I am a visual artist and illustrator. I work in several mediums including drawing, painting, digital art, and printmaking. Sometimes I work from what I see, often I work from nightly . My work is about emotion, time, safety, finding one’s “place.” Lately it is also about layering, literally and metaphorically.
My Illustrations and fine artwork have in common a bold, graphic style and a 'quirky' edge.
