About Nancy

In 1980 I married my husband, a farmer, and began teaching high school art at Anamosa, Iowa, the birthplace of Grant Wood, painter of the most famous American painting, American Gothic. All of the local, state and national awards I’ve received along the way didn’t matter as much as helping students. And now I want to help you!

Mom to three and grandmother to two, I want to encourage and inspire you to live your best life.

I will tell you about life on a small Iowa family farm or share a heritage recipe that I also illustrate. Here’s a link to what this website is about.

Do I have stuff to tell you!
