Born in Texas in the 1960s, Nancy Good now lives and works in Las Vegas, NV. Her ouvre over three decades has been influenced by: travels to Australia, Africa, Vietnam; childhood residency in Japan; adult life as an artist, photographer, musician, outdoor enthusiast, writer, and teacher across the US, along with her eclectic DNA revealing connections with cultures the world over. Threaded through Good's work are materials and tools of modern times while playfully utilizing aesthetics of ancient ancestries, symbols and primitive mark-making. Good's studio practice is deeply rooted in self-discipline, dedication and unwavering focus on the creation of strong contemporary art that compels dialogue and human connection. Working with a sensory condition known as synesthesia, she is acutely aware of vibrations, and translates this into her work via color palette and thematic elements.
Good’s work is regularly seen in exhibits across the country in high profile locations such as Las Vegas City Hall, Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery (UNLV), Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art (UNLV), Nevada Humanities, HERE Arts in NYC, Nashville International Airport, Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, Contemporary Arts Center in Las Vegas, Burning Man, Life is Beautiful Festival and galleries in the Southeast, New York, Montana, Nevada and California. Collected throughout the U.S. and overseas through sales, gifts and charitable donations, her work has also been acquired by the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Fine Art and celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck. Good has also received three Congressional Commendations for her artistic contributions.
