About Nancy

 

I have been taking pictures for over forty-five years.

I was born in Milton, Massachusetts, and after being educated in the East, I escaped to Eugene, Oregon and worked as a waitress, a VISTA volunteer, a photographer on several book projects, and a graphic designer and photographer for The Small Farmer’s Journal. I played soccer and softball, went white water rafting, and watched the Flying Karamosov Brothers juggle nude. At 30, I spent two years at Ohio University earning an MFA in photography, and then returned home to Boston where I cleaned houses, waitressed, and eventually taught photography for several years. At 37, much to the relief of my mother, I married and had two children. I stopped teaching and worked as a Mom. Now that my children have left, I am teaching parttime , concentrating on my own work and going on bike rides with my husband and our black lab, Lucy.
