Nancy has been drawing since elementary school. She was fascinated with paint by number sets, and wondered how could anyone ever paint without the numbers. In the 1st grade, Nancy’s teacher posted her art on the bulletin boards and was encouraged to draw.
In the 7th grade, her art teacher, Mrs. Sprecker, said she was showing the talent of a college level student. In the 10th grade, Nancy sold her 1st oil painting to her tennis coach. She believed that the encouragement by teachers and friends was a “call” to utilize her God-given talents.
After graduating from high school, Nancy went on to get a Bachelor’s degree in Drawing and Painting with a minor in Design Communications.
She has illustrated children’s books, activity books, and coloring books. She has designed / illustrated wallpaper, scrapbook paper, party invitations, and has also produced illustrations for corporations. Nancy also designs logos for start-up companies, corporations, and not for profit.
