Nancy Colella

From Norwell, MA

Nancy earned a BA in Fine Art from Muskingum University, then studied painting at the Aegean School of Fine Arts in Paros, Greece and at the Instituto Allende in San Miquel Mexico. After a career in the hospitality business and while raising two children, she resumed her studies at Mass College of Art. She has studied with and is currently inspired by the contemporary painters Peggi Kroll Roberts, Charles Sovek, Mark Daniel Nelson, and Patti Mollica to name a few. She is a Copley Master of the Copley Society of Art in Boston, MA, and a faculty member of the North River Arts Society in Marshfield, MA. 


Nancy finds herself focusing on the relationships of shape, value, color, and line rather than the actual subject. 

“We love how Nancy represents her love of New England Culture through her paintings” – FC Team

“Just walking into the Frame Center is a positive experience! The staff is incredibly talented and sensitive to the clients needs. My personal favorite, (and now good friend) Dina, has been helping me for years and her knowledge and design sense always end with the right frame for each piece. I highly recommend the Frame Center for all your framing needs!” -N.C.

Barns and Beach Houses


Nancy is fascinated by the juxtaposition between manmade geometric structures and their organic surroundings​.
