Nancy began experimenting in 1989 with the "notorious" Kudzu vine after moving to South Carolina to be close to the Cherokee Reservation. Nancy shares her Native American heritage by retelling ancient legends orally and through her art. She says of her work "I feel the old ones guiding my fingers". She and her daughter, Joleen Oh, also do beautiful art with pine needles, grape vines, and turning Kudzu into paper art. Each piece of art is a signed original with its story printed on the back.
