Fine Artist

Hi World!

Nancy Smith Klos

I have been creating original artwork here in the Pacific Northwest since I moved to Portland, Oregon in 1985! Although I am primarily a painter, I also have a background in textile design: surface design and French Pictorial tapestry. These other art forms inform my work in color texture pattern and overall design.

I also practice and teach the Asian art of Sumie. Painting with inks onto rice papers. As a Plein Air painter I go out on location whenever the weather permits. I have traveled and painted extensively along the west coast and in New Mexico as well at the famed Ghost Ranch in Abuiqui. 

My work has been featured on Oregon ArtBeat & HGTV's Modern Masters. I have written articles for OutDoor Painter, Plein Air magazines. Most recently,          "The Healing Power of Mother Nature" was published this past summer 2020 in which I wrote about our Columbia River Gorge area after the events of the eagle Creek Fire in 2017.

(Please see CV for details on shows and education.)

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


The natural world is my true inspiration. I spend a lot of painting time on location whenever and wherever I can!


I am a Plein Air Painter. I use palette knife and brushes to make my marks on the canvas. My oils are from several companies, but I do buy locally from the Gamblin Artist Color Co. and M. Graham-both color houses support my workshops throughout the PNW...

career highlights

I had the pleasure of teaching a painting clinic while standing in front of Georgia O'Keeffe's home at ghost Ranch. I demonstrated a painting setup for  Pedernal Mountain!
