I first met Nancy while sitting on the back porch of a good mutual friend sipping wine and reminiscing about the Pacific Northwest (where we both have roots). Nancy is truly a modern Renaissance woman. She is a photographer, designer, ceramicist, print-maker, curator, gallery director, professor, and well, I could go on and on. Her resume includes being the Director of Photography and a Graphic Designer for D.I.Y. Design it Yourself, photographing the likes of U2 and David Byrne and organizing single-evening exhibitions in her Gallery 2219. Nancy has traveled extensively but at least as of late keeps turning up in Baltimore.
Nancy is currently thinking more about the intersection of various art forms—printmaking and furniture design, graphic design and ceramics, photography and fashion design. Her current interest lies in how common materials can be used in unusual ways (the designs on the pottery were created from ready-made decals and a hole puncher). I could go on and on writing wonderful things about all of Nancy’s talents and work but I think that the images and her photos truly speak for themselves. (Thank you Nancy!)

Nancy collaborates with Scott Penningtonto make these extendable bedside tables (she designs, he builds) which he has now offered to continue reproducing!
