In her spare time, Nanci creates art in pastels, oils, pen, ink and colored pencils. She sometimes depicts what she sees but, more often than not, she draws what’s in her mind, images that can’t be found in the natural world. Nanci’s art has appeared in numerous juried shows in the Sacramento area and in the KVIE annual on air and online fundraisers.
She is also an amateur photographer, especially loves to capture unusual pictures of birds and other critters. Her photo, "Supermoon," won the JUROR'S AWARD at the California State Fair, 2017, in the Fine Arts-Color Photography category.
