Nanci Hersh’s life is her canvas. Whether she is in the studio or classroom, on the yoga mat or in the water, she is passionate about making the most of every day and forming meaningful connections within her community. Her two dimensional work as well as her sculptures and installations are examinations and celebrations of life at its best – and most challenging. It is how she make sense of the world to create peace and healing.

Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States including Eons Beyond the Rib, at Seraphin Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, Navigation Puzzle, at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, Paper Work, at the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie and The Demoiselles Revisited at Francis M. Naumann Fine Art, NYC, along with solo exhibitions in PA, NJ, DE, and Hawaii. Nanci has received numerous honors including three purchase awards from the State Foundation of Culture and the Arts, Hawaii and two Leeway Foundation Art & Change Grants. Her work is included in the Public Collections of Johnson & Johnson, Herspace Breast Imaging, Leland Portland Cement, and OSI Pharmaceuticals to name a few.

She lives in beautiful Chester County, PA with her husband, two teenage sons, dogs, and her backyard koi fish pond.
