Nancy Yergin

Nancy is a retired dietitian and Penn State Cooperative Extension educator with a graduate degree in Nutrition.  Self-taught in art, her craft reflects subjects near and dear to her heart: foods, flowers, and the natural world.  She is a juried artist member of the Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania and a charter member of the Forest Area Arts Council.  She resides in Tionesta, PA.

Mixed media collage is her preferred medium.  Using a combination of tissue and hand-made Asian papers on stretched canvas, her colorful works are held together with acrylic medium, layer by layer, and then finished off with pen and ink.  She accepts commissions for her artwork and offers private instruction on the basics of her style of two-dimensional collage.
