About the Artist
Making art is why I breathe, it's what I do, it is why I was born.
artist quote, Nan Benner
In my first career I worked as an art director/graphic designer for twenty-five years, and have been employed in the fields of printing, marketing and advertising, in Portland and the mid-coast area.
During the 80's I attended Maine College of Art, Portland, Maine and returned to college in 2002 graduating from the University of Maine with a BA and AA in Studio Art/Education. My second career led me to work in the education field for 13 years.
I focus on creating/incorporating subjects which are drawn from the inside/out, as an offering with the intent for the viewer to create their own perspective story. The images and ideas often come to me during meditation and yoga.
Meditation and yoga are very important to my source of creativity and strength. I am also an energy healer offering, as I believe most artists are?Namaste
