Nancy Pendleton took one cold winter semester off from her studies at Michigan State to spend with a friend in sunny Phoenix. She never went back! Over her many years of living in the Valley of the Sun, Nancy developed a deep connection and appreciation for this city in the desert.
Her recent series, ‘Our Urban Desert’ expresses the contrast of a thriving city and the vast Sonoran desert, and how they co-exist in harmony and make 'The Valley' a totally unique place to be. The artist mixes her trademark graphic style with vibrant colors and rich textures to tell her story. “I can’t imagine living anywhere else."
