About Nancy Pochis Bank

Nancy Pochis Bank is a Chicago based visual artist. Nancy’s specialties include watercolor, oil painting and chalk art murals. A recipient of the multi-year Chicago Neighborhood Arts Program Grant, Nancy provides fine art instruction to seniors and high school students. In addition to her work in arts education, Nancy completes several commissioned portraits and murals each year, and her artwork has been exhibited in numerous venues throughout the United States.

Nancy started her professional career in business, earning a BA from the University of Michigan and an MBA from the University of Chicago. In 2000, after twelve years in management consulting, she turned toward her lifelong passion for painting, enrolled in the Continuing Education Program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and studied with Chicago artist Ed Hinkley.

Nancy is an active arts advocate: she dedicates her time and art skills to benefit her community and raise awareness for a range of social issues through public artworks such as five “Cool Globes”, two Great Chicago Fire Hydrants, Literary Chicago, and the annual Art Therapy Connection’s Chalk Festival.

Accommodating, creative, easy, flexible, professional, very pleasant.

The quality of the artwork is outstanding, I am extremely happy with the end product. Communication with Nancy and her team was very quick and easy. Working collaboratively with Nancy and her team was much more productive than working with one artist, and one of my favorite experiences so far. The Studio is highly professional and I would absolutely work with Pochis Bank Art Studio again!
