Nancy began her career as a photographer over 20 years ago as creative director of her own visual communications company, Seaside Designs.
She produces limited edition prints of her fine art photography and a variety of notecards and desktop calendars. She specializes in nature photography (as an avid hiker and casual naturalist) but also has an affinity for all things rust. Her vast selection of 'erotic arbutus' is in demand in both private and corporate collections.
Since 2001, Nancy has exhibited in many gallery shows and artisan fairs on Vancouver Island and has won several awards. In 2012, her photography was displayed on billboards in Times Square which she considers quite a thrill.
She instructs the 'Art of Photography' and 'How to Photograph Your Art' workshops on a regular basis in the Victoria vicinity.
Her recent creative exploration is mixed media - integrating photography into acrylic collage on panel or canvas.
She has a large selection of originals available from 4" x 3" to 24" x 30" as well as reproductions of some mixed media pieces .
Nancy is also teaching a new workshop 'Having Fun with Photos - Transfer & Transform' which illustrates several ways of integrating photography into mixed media as well as discovering methods of giving new life to old photos.
