Nancy Gan is a Singaporean artist that specialises in porcelain painting.

She was educated as a classical pianist, graduating from Trinity College of London (LTCL).

A talented artist, her porcelain paintings are admired for their subtlety and the vivid, yet accurate portrayal of the subtle nuances in her subjects. She delicately depicts flowers, fruits, birds and even an occasional landscape, working on bone china porcelain on various objects, vases, elaborate dinner sets and trinket boxes. She has been painting on this medium since 1980.

Demonstrations for charity fund-raising efforts have increased the visibility of her art to a greater audience, with press covered demonstrations in aid of numerous charities in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, USA and Australia.

Over the course of her career, Nancy Gan has worked in close cooperation with multinational organizations and corporate bodies and had the pleasure of being supported by the Shui On Group for her last exhibition at One Xintiandi, Shanghai, China.
