inch of Pablo Picasso's distinct proboscises. Strong color use applied with precision draftsmanship to Nancy's wild imaginative paintings create an illusionary world of dark subjects that on the one hand hold mysterious meanings, but on the other are whimsical observations. However, the collection is more than a group of paintings on canvass; instead they are the story of how Nancy arrived to paint Skull Art. Born into a family of two cultures; her paternal grandfather's people came to Virginia a few years after the Mayflower landed at Plymouth. They were pioneer tobacco farmers who gradually migrated to Mississippi; where they founded towns, built schools, and preached the Bible in church. In contrast, her maternal grandmother's family from Northern Chihuahua, Mexico, had strong political influences with President Porfirio Diaz and his politicos. When the insurgent Pancho Villa and his followers blew up an army barrack and the train station at Juarez, Mexico, the family fled the violence to the safety of El Paso, Texas. Along the way, there were some violent deaths that influenced the family for generations. But it was not until Nancy had a close call with her own death did she experience a paradigm shift that set her upon a journey into Skull Art.
