“I tell stories rooted in what it is to be human. My experience of wonder is influenced by nature. My relationship to everything is the source that feeds my work. My fascination with life, light, love, and fear can’t help but show up. They want in, and I am more than thrilled to oblige.”
“Three of Them” by Jane Filer.

yooo , this week’s takeover, North Wales-born & Carrboro-based amazing visual artist Nerys Levy (she/her) , is deeply rooted in her native country’s culture, which has inspired her paintings of the forms and forces of nature….🔦

🎙️ “Hi there. This is Nerys Levy (she/her), longtime resident of Carrboro. N.C. I am a visual artist, born in North Wales and moved to the USA on my marriage to American anthropologist Robert Levy, now deceased.

I am Welsh speaking and was raised in a culture steeped in revering natural forces and landscape through the arts. My maternal grandfather was a painter who taught me how to look at my surroundings.

While I have painted for most of my life, I was discouraged earlier on from pursuing full time art studies and instead took “more academic “ subjects. This trajectory resulted in careers in Britain as an educator and social administrator in race relations.

My move to the USA opened the opportunity to study the visual arts. It was clear that my calling was to document the forms and forces of nature and the move to the Triangle thirty-two years ago provided me with many opportunities to show my work and become involved in the local arts community, both as a painter and arts administrator.

Pursuing both ends of the arts business has provided me with artistic stimulation and the opportunity to use my artistic, educational, and administrative skills at , Chapel Hill/Carrboro where I am a member artist, Outreach chair and grant writer. I am also Co-Chair of the Art Program Horace Williams House and for twenty-five years ran the Carrboro Branch Library’s Arts Program.”
