During her thirteen years at the newspaper, Nancy developed a strong following through an upscale Scottsdale gallery where her work was showcased - this allowed her to quit her day job and devote all her time to painting.
Influenced by her love of nature, Nancy’s work has at times included seed pods, unusual sticks and leaves and handmade paper. Her intense love and devotion to animals has played a part as well, and she donates her time and talent to many local animal-related charities. She is beloved by many in the animal welfare community for her beautiful art and championing of those who cannot speak for themselves.
Recently, the artist’s passion for fashion as an art and expression of personal style, has been a major influence in her mixed media pieces. Her dream of attending Paris Fashion Week in Fall 2017 was an impetus for many of her new, fashion-inspired pieces. She is involved in the Arizona Costume Institute, as well.
Over the last 20 years, Nancy has been represented long-term in galleries on Canyon Road in Santa Fe (Adieb Khadoure Fine Art, Crossroads Contemporary), as well as in Tucson and Scottsdale (Wilde Meyer Galleries). Her work is included in collections of PetSmart, Henkel, and at the Hyatt Regency among others, as well as in the homes of many collectors across the country.
