Nancy’s years as an illustrator, designer and art director enhance her work. The compositions are very graphic and contemporary in tone. The colors are brilliant yet sophisticated. Patterns and texture play an important part. The compositions create an intimate relationship between the observer and the painting.

Her selected professional achievements include the Art Directors Club of N.J. Distinctive Merit Award, Citation of Merit Awards from the Society of Illustrators N.Y. City, and First Place in a National Billboard Competition. First place, best in show, at the Cape May Cultural and Heritage Society.
