Nancy Crandall Phillips, born in Washington, D.C. spent most of her childhood in the D.C. area.  She lived for several years in Lima, Peru as her father was with the Foreign Service where free time were spent exploring pre-Columbian ruins.  Upon returning to the U.S. she could be most often found in her high school’s ceramics studio then studied fiber and fabric design while an undergraduate at the University of Maryland.  These experiences clearly inform her current work.  She continued to study ceramics, drawing and printmaking while working in the interior design business, finally moving to southern California in 1987 to pursue her art career.   She studied painting and drawing at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and earned a Masters degree from California State University, Northridge in 1992.  Since then her work has appeared in a variety of galleries and juried exhibitions across the country including the Art Rental and Sales Gallery at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Circle Gallery in Annapolis, Maryland and Cortile Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts.  She and her husband James Crandall (also an artist) moved to the Sierra foothills in 2006.
