Sister Nancy is a Benedictine sister of Annunciation Monetary, where she taught in the school of Arts and Science at the University of Mary. She is primarily a self-taught artist who loves to “dabble” as she calls it, in fibers and color.
As Sister Nancy states, “Both nature and spirituality have been rich sources of creative energy for me. I seek to create works with meaning that invite people to come closer and enter I work I have opened - to discover its mysteries and intricate beauty.” Sense of place would describe what influences many of her works from what she sees out of her window or on her walks.
Sister Nancy has used her art as a teaching tool in her classroom and has used her art in retreats combining art and spirituality where participants made creations of their own.
Exhibited in the fourth annual North Dakota Human Rights Arts Festival. The exhibition featured the work of 52 different artists from around the world, each addressing a human rights, civil rights or social justice issue.
