Nancy was born and raised in Port Credit, Ontario and now lives, creates and teaches art in Hamilton, Ontario. She received an Honours degree for Sociology & Anthropology attending the University of Guelph. A study abroad program through the university allowed Nancy to live and work in London, England, where her passion for art and design was awakened and rekindled. No longer content as an onlooker, she pursued her passion upon returning home to Toronto. She studied at, among others, Ryerson University, O.C.A.D. and George Brown College.
