I am constantly, inspired by color combinations and creating striking compositions.”

 59th HILLCREST FESTIVAL OF FINE ARTS

 

 Nancy Enkoji

“Objects found on walks in the city find their way into an altarpiece or sculpture.”

     

      For Nancy Enkojiher artwork is reflective of everyday life, everyday occurrences become the theme for a painting; gardens appear and if it is the year of the Rabbit, rabbits abound. Her drawings and paintings become a visual journal of her likes, dislikes and current passions. 

      The Geisha has become her alter ego. Often misunderstood by western cultures she juxtaposes them into Western life. Instead of the traditional “getas” (traditional Japanese footwear), they turn into cowboy boots; cowboy hats replace traditional headwear and lassos replace fans.  Her favorite baseball players become Samurai warriors, though still swinging swords they also carry their baseball mitts.  Nancy receives much joy incorporating her very modern western lifestyle into a traditional expected world, old worlds full of traditions were grace and charm are for the most part expected. Nancy spends a lot of time laughing as she paints or builds her pieces.

  

Introducing Fine Art Artist  Bianca Rice 

   

Bianca Rice 

 

     In continuing with our tradition of sustaining the Fine Arts in our Community for the past 59 years, inspiring students and young artists in our community, this year we are proud to introduce Fine Art artist Bianca Rice. 

 

      Bianca Rice  is a landscape and fine art artist that works with both Oils, and Watercolors creating impressive yet serene peaceful landscapes. Bianca’s technique moves quickly with an unapologetically fluidity and conviction, leaving traces of justified color on the canvas for audiences to see and fall in love with. These color movements on the canvas create a sense of freedom capturing the innermost aspects of her personality that began when she was a child. 

                  Bianca Rice attained a MAFA from the University of San Francisco; currently she resides in Ojai, CA, where she continues to be inspired by such a beautiful natural environments of the land that she calls home.
