Nancy Perkins of Rome, PA is an oil painter. Bass jumping through water, butterflies on flowers, and deer basking in sunlight are a few of the subjects she captures.

The endless yearning to study, travel, and document her travels in oil on canvas is her passion.The Two Woman Show: Jeanine Rounds and Nancy Perkins, opens at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center on May 1, 2012 and will hang until May 27, 2012.
