"I am, therefore I art"
Until opening her own studio (Mountain Mama Studio) in Mannington, WV, Nancy was employed as Creative Director at a large coastal North Carolina ad specialties company. As a computer artist, she designed ads, logos, catalogs, tee shirts, web sites, and an assortment of other miscellaneous graphic projects. Today she is semi-retired but still likes to design everything and anything!
For personal satisfaction, Nancy stays busy creating mixed media art pieces. Her recent "Book Series" is part of an on-going project prompted by her love of books and of reading. Nancy also designs and fabricates earrings and up-cycled jewelry, some of which can be purchased online at www.outrageousearrings.com. Nancy is particularly interested in re-cyling and her earrings reflect this.
Nancy has deep roots in Marion County. She recently returned home to "Wild and Wonderful West Virginia", the best place short of Heaven. Her two Pomeranians Tinker and Dukie Baby live in the home as well as her new pups, Bunny Rabbit (a Border Terrier) and Zippie (a long-hair Chihuahua) Toothman. All are rescues and all four pups are perfect. Nancy also has two gorgeous daughters, Alice and Melissa, who have been gifted more outrageous earrings than any daughters could possibly desire... or maybe not?
It's all good! In fact, it's even better than that. West Virginia is truly "almost Heaven" to me. I am so very blessed and I love my life.
Me and BunnyBoy,
a sweet little rescue from Pennslvania.
This was the day we came home.
Happy on a vacation cruise in Barbados with one of my darling daughters.
In Washington, DC. I tried.
