As a modern painter, the dominant characteristics of Nancy Chu Woo's art are colour and abstraction, in which she explores such themes as nudes, still lifes, and landscapes using a colourful palette. She combines her Impressionistic use of colours with her distinct multi-layered wash techniques and Chinese media to create dynamic and ethereal works on xuan paper.

Nancy Chu Woo was born in China and grew up in Hong Kong. She began to paint in the tradition of the Lingnan School. She then pursued her formal training as a painter in the United States, earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Cornell University and her Master of Arts degree at Columbia University. After spending fourteen years in New York, during which she developed her skills in all genres of Western art, Nancy returned to Hong Kong in 1973. Here she continued to paint while teaching at The University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Arts Centre. She has exhibited widely in and outside of Hong Kong, including Mainland China, Singapore, Taipei, Europe, Canada, the United States and Mexico.
