Nancy Waite Parke


For a quarter century, Nancy Parke (1927 - 2018) was a respected California artist in watercolors, acrylics and oils. Her paintings focus on pastoral scenes of a gentle and inviting aura, characterized by warm, rich and contrasting colors.

During her career, Nancy exhibited in a number of galleries, juried art shows and private salon showings in California, Arizona and Oregon. Her works are displayed by patrons in London, Bangkok, Bloomfield Hills, Laguna Beach, Malibu, San Juan Capistrano and a number of other locations. Nancy also wrote and illustrated a children's book called "Oscar the Octopus," published by Dorrance Co.

Nancy's remaining printings are maintained by her husband, Dr. Daniel Boland. For inquiries, photos of available paintings or for a private showing, please contact Dr. Boland at 949-503-2608 in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
