NANCY POCHIS BANK is a chalk artist and figurative painter based in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. Her work can be seen in restaurants, tradeshows and corporate offices as well as public spaces. Recently, her work as a chalk artist and muralist was enlisted to create the custom hand-lettered cover of Crain’s 2014 Book of Lists.
Ms. Pochis Bank also creates work for the public sphere; she created two giant globes for “Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet” in Chicago and these globes have traveled throughout the U.S. and internationally as part of an ongoing environmental art exhibit. Nancy is a recipient of two Chicago Neighborhood Arts Grants.
An active member of the vibrant Ravenswood community, Nancy Pochis Bank is a regular participant in the annual Ravenswood ArtWalk “Tour of Arts and Industry” and you can visit her studio during their arts tour each October during Chicago Artists Month. Nancy accepts several portrait commissions each year and is excited to announce the availability of Interlocking Portrait™ commissions in oil or watercolor.
