"Stylistically speaking, von Hone...is a painterly realist...Her critical eye gives each painting a perfect sense of balance...but color is her forte. From brooding nocturnals to radiant sunsets and icy blue lakes with crystalline skies, she utilizes color in a dramatic way to make her subjects compelling."

~ Worcester Magazine 

I approach my art work as food for my soul – a refuge from the chaotic demands of everyday life. The sense of “calm in the storm” that I feel while creating my paintings is the same feeling I hope my paintings bring to the viewer."

~ Nancy E. von Hone,

 Boylston, Massachusetts

 "Largely self-taught, the Boylston resident captures skies and sunsets with the exacting precision of a photographer and the swelling emotions of a poet.

Massive orange-tinged thunderclouds darken the skies over Sedona. As fleecy clouds settle over the Happy River, azure skies stretch across Tibetan plains to the far horizon. A stone tower squats atop a rocky precipice overlooking the gray Atlantic beneath gun-metal skies."
