It’s been a busy summer of exhibiting~

September 16, 2009

The summer started with a big show at the fabulous ANKA Gallery where I had 17 big pieces in the front room of the gallery. I got to premiere the “FAMILY PORTRAITZ” series and that was exciting.

The pieces are approx. 30″ x 40″ framed and consist of Arches 88 Water color paper coated with molding paste, irridescent arcylic and rabbit skin glue and they Giclee printed and UV varnish and attached to a brushed aluminum surface.

As always, I try my best to make sure all archival materials are in contact with the images and this series was a great challenge using these materials.




I currently have 2 other shows up at the 3D Center for Art and Photography. The only Museum in the US dedicated to Stereographic Imagery.

The pieces I have in this show are large 8″ x 8″ Stereo Pairs that you view with a large hand held stereo viewer to see the pairs in 3D (see pics).

I also have a Lenticular Light Box which I built.




If you look at the line in the center of the following image, just wait for the two images to converge. You will see a 3rd image. Stay focused on that. The image will appear in 3D….and yes that’s without glasses.

Another show my work is in right now is at the ONDA Gallery on Alberta Street in Portland. The theme of this show was Cowboy. My work  consists of photos of Cowboys which have been Digitally enhanced and printed onto Fabrics. I used both a Cotton Poplin and a Denim/ Both Fabrics common to the Cowboy culture. I then integrated oil pastels into the prints and stretched them as canvases over beech plywood.

Of course, we all dressed up in Cowboy attire.




I just got into another show with pieces I created with the awesome artist Lyn Bishop

These pieces were to depict a Journey of the Soul.

They are Digital photos that we took as self portraits and printed onto silk as well as film which we then transfered to water color paper. We attached these images onto a prepared wooden surface. Also integrated into the pieces are hinges, horse shoes and leaf viens.

Here are the pieces in progess. The show runs in October through December 2009 at the

Siren Nation Arts Festival – Olympic Mills Commerce Center

Check back for details on that show.



Happy clients and more collaborative work in the near future!

September 16, 2009

I am excited to share that the commissioned work with Chief Media was a joy and a success. We started by obtaining the Benjamin Moore wall colors and I matched colors in the prints to the wall colors to help make things pop.

The prints really compliment the work that they do. Check them out at

Art Media was also a pleasure to work with here. Mel & Sarah did a great job framing and giving advice on how to frame these large archival prints for a modern NYC office. They packaged them safely and they arrived in perfect condition ready to hang in their NYC office.

I’m excited for the 2nd round of images we will create together!

Here are some kind words from my client at Chief Media.



Dear Nance,

I wanted to take a moment to send you this note of thanks for all your creativity and hard work in bringing the vision

for our corporate office art project to life. Selecting pieces and colors that speak of our Direct Response Advertising Agency’s

past and present, as well as the industry as a whole, was right on the mark. Your ability to coordinate backgrounds,  frames

and mattes as well as color variations within pieces all lend to the excellent look and feel of our space and are deserved of the

positive comments we receive from customers and visitors.

Thank you again and I’m looking forward to working together in the near future as we complete our current

office expansion.

1950s Ads Revived in New Manhattan Space

June 10, 2009

I was commissioned by Chief Media NYC to take a set of Ads originally from the 1950s and restore them & hand tint them. After this process, they were to be printed onto large sheets (varying from almost 4 feet wide x 3 feet long and smaller) of UltraSmooth Fine Art Paper using the Ultrachrome  matte black Archival Pigment Inkset.

They were framed archivally & beautifully by Art Media in Portland Oregon and shipped to NYC to hang on their new office walls.
