  • Nancy began her career like many illustrators do - crayoning on walls. Back then it was considered a bad habit, now she gets paid for it. In fact, she's doodled her way into a great career. While she now live in the U.S., she spent a big chunk of her life in Montreal (that's Mo-ray-al, if you wanna sound French). She went to Art school (big "A" like painting, printmaking, sculpture, and makin' a mess), and studied Graphic Design & Illustration, graduating with a B.F.A., and an M.A. from Syracuse, a much bigger box of crayons, and a big black portfolio to drag around. She has worked as an Art Director & V.P. for an ad agency where she learned "work week" means 80 hours, budgets are ALWAYS less than your quote, and art directors supply free psychotherapy to clients. All this helped her start her own business and she's never looked back: She loves commuting in her slippers (but sometimes hates her boss). So here she is, still doodling, though she now does it digitally. She's done more than 30 kids books, magazines galore, and teaches the occasional digital art class to torture future creatives.
