Ongoing: Graduate Mentoring

I had the pleasure to work with Nancy as a mentor during the final year of my graduate thesis work. Through her guidance I was introduced to artists like Jo Spence and Mira Schor, and the writings of Marianne Hirsch. These artists, and their writings would have a tremendous influence on my thesis body. It was with Nancy’s thoughtful encouragement and support, that helped me to find the confidence to take my photography and artwork in new and unexpected directions. She often provided the extra boost of encouragement I needed to remind myself to not over think, and simply create! She said, on more than one occasion, “Stop thinking. Start making.” I am forever grateful to Nancy for her mentorship and guidance.

The structure of the workshop allows you to work at your own level. Bring your successful and your problematic images (either prints or on a disk) and Nancy will look at them with you. She’ll help you to see what works and why; where you might have succeeded when you thought you hadn’t, and what you might have done differently.
