Interests and Personality I have drawn pictures for as long as I can remember. My favorite possessions (besides books) were crayons, pencils, and felt pens and I even won first prize in a coloring contest when I was in the second grade. I still draw but now I usually work with oil pastels on black paper. Animals are my main subject matter. Whether I am writing and illustrating children's books, creating designs for products or working on fine art, animals always seem to pop up. I live and work in Portland, Oregon. Clients include: Highlights for Children Henry Holt Houghton Mifflin Starbucks The Nature Company Second Nature Software Harcourt Mud Puppy Press Gango Editions The Canvas Company Doernbecher Children's Hospital Little, Brown, & Co. Books include: Good Night Sigmund Dogs in Space Tom's Fish The Dog Who Cried Woof Dogs in Space: The Great Space Doghouse What's Cookin' Pug in a Truck (Fall 2006) Fred Stays With Me (2007)

thanks much as i want to paint beautiful pictures and figures, the site and stories of street kids everywhere bothers me so much now and i want to give so much...


oh thanks Nancy, wow you've got a great collection of art wel I guess the profession pays better over there but its pretty tough to survive as an artist in Lagos Nigeria!!! we have to get another job just to get by!!

thanks, your works are lovely, very uplifting


Lovely work, Nancy. You've got great imagination.


I so enjoy the spirit of your creations.......


I just finished a creation called "Spiritual Rebirth", tell me what you think.


Luv your "Too many Cooks" piece, all though from experience you can never have to many :-)


Yep! more bright colorful animals!! really like your style. Jo


Hi Nancy, how have you been? BTW, pls do check on this exciting site & share it w/ your family & friends:


style and design are excellent. thank you


Hi - Thanks for inviting me to be one of your pals here! No problem, my pleasure - art should be individual and personal I believe and yours certainly is, great! :-) So have you used these charachters within stories for your own children as I have? :-) A lasting family heirloom eh? :-) Are they following their dad? OK - chat sometime? Peter


I just finished this piece called "Meditation", tell me what you think.
