About The Artist
Life in the arts was inevitable for Nancy…a natural path from a young age for the future photographic artist who saw life as color and balance. As a teenager, she enjoyed visiting flea markets and was drawn to memorabilia from the 40s and the 50s. Nancy’s mother was a model, and fashion and design offered to her another world of creativity. The artist took her first photography course while studying at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. During time spent in southern Utah and having a natural gift for finding beauty in unexpected places, Nancy found her niche in photographing vintage, abandoned trucks. These iconic, American symbols could be found in various locales, especially in the desert or nestled in the landscape with a barn as the backdrop. They were irresistible! As she travels the country, sometimes the best part of her work is the sheer luck of rounding a corner on a dirt road with the sun in a perfect position…and there is an old “friend” waiting just for her and her camera. The stories that the images evoke tell much more than the truck’s year, make, and model….it’s also the era of its design and the eternal beauty of nature reclaiming it that serve as inspiration. Many years and thousands of miles later, Nancy’s passion for photography and travel have brought her to a place of playful, creative expression. While Nancy’s unique photography has brought her recognition and success, she uses her talents in other creative avenues such as fashion, jewelry-making, ceramics, and home design. The artist’s work is represented by fine galleries throughout America.
