She exploits the freedom of ink and materials that is expressive in design, tone, and treatment.

Among the “Collective Ink” artists, she is a spark and her cheerfulness is welcome in the studio.

“In 2006, I started doing monotypes and was smitten. The thrill of peeling back the paper after cranking the wheel on the etching press never loses appeal. Although some of these monotypes are complete off the press, they sometimes serve as a rich, textured backdrop for mixed media pieces that contain etchings, drawings, watercolors, collage or photographic images to form my mixed media pieces.”

Nancy studied at Auburn University, Auburn Al where she obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts (painting)

Flutter Away is a single butterfly that she describes: "A brightly colored butterfly enhances this ginkgo leaf monotype." See companion piece, Three Butterflies.

"Time for Tea" illustrates her use of collage and monotype.

She describes, "Inspiration for this piece comes mainly from my print studio friends, with whom I have tea between times at the press. This piece contains many elements and layers using the techniques of collage, monotype and watercolor."

February 15- March 16, 2014
Reception: Saturday, February 22, 2014 3-5 p.m.
Popcorn Gallery
7300 MacArthur Blvd.
Glen Echo Park, MD 20812

The show's visual interest is enhanced by the diverse methods of printmaking represented (including monotype, etching and aquatint, reduction woodcut and photopolymer intaglio) and the subject matter included, but the exhibition remains a unified body because all of the exhibited works will be prints.

Collective Ink incorporates a variety of prints and techniques, allowing each artist to present the best of her work. Each offers a unique take on a theme, ranging from landscape, photo imagery and still life to fantasy and portraiture.”
