Nancy Keating is a Carmel, Indiana resident and graduate of Indiana University.
She discovered her passion for mosaics in 1997 and began her mosaic journey. Ms. Keating has since worked with tradesmen and professional tile installers to gain technical expertise. Intensive training at the Institute of Mosaic Art in Oakland, California has honed her artistic technique and mosaic craftsmanship. Notably, Ms. Keating has studied under renowned mosaic artists, including Laurel True and Isaiah Zagar.
Nancy’s mosaic style is heavily influenced by her travels in the U.S. and abroad and she finds particular inspiration in the brightly colored mosaics of Antonio Gaudi of Barcelona, Spain.
Her mosaic style is contemporary and marked by the festive use of vibrant colors, reflective textures and an occasional touch of whimsy. Her works are mixed media, using an array of art glasses, ceramics and recycled found objects. She works in her local studio and has created countless mosaic pieces over the years, including public works of art and architectural residential installations.
Nancy is a "juried/ chosen" Indiana Artisan, Carmel Arts&Design Artisan
and Indiana Glass Trail Artisan and a Professional Level member of the
Society of American Mosaic Artists.
Her art work can be found at Art on Main Gallery & Gifts in
the Carmel Arts and Design District,
