Sometimes, early in the morning when the sun tries to make its way through thick forest foliage, the forest floor is cast into an amazing green light. This particular morning in Grand Teton National Park was one like that. This beautiful pelican was floating on the quiet waters of Oxbow Bend, silhouetted against the loamy river bank. It was all lush, quiet, and beautiful.

Nancee Jean Busse can’t remember a time when she wasn’t processing her experiences and observations through drawing or painting. From elementary school through a graduate degree, painting was the thread of continuity that honed her love of art, nature, and observation. Many years of working as an illustrator, then art director of an educational publishing company provided an opportunity to learn and appreciate the value of strong design and simple forms. The color, simplicity, humor, and narrative quality of children’s illustration provided yet another springboard for visual expression. NJ Busse has always loved the expansive beauty of the American West and its wild animals. The unsurpassed beauty of western Colorado provides the artist with unlimited opportunities to paint powerful landscapes and awe-inspiring wildlife. In November, 2013, she was profiled in Western Art Collector Magazine. In 2014 she was profiled in Southwest Art Magazine and again in Western Art Collector Magazine. Her paintings have been featured in American Artist, American Art Collector, and Art of the West Magazine. Nancee lives with her husband, dog, and cat at the foot of the spectacular Colorado National Monument. The ever-changing beauty of the red, slickrock canyons and panoramic vistas provide her the wondrous opportunity to chronicle the wide-open beauty of the America West.
