"...Nan’s selflessness, her dedication to her art and to her community, and her affection for all living things make her a model for many to positively reflect upon. She had eclectic and progressive interests and made enjoying nature and her art her focal points. Her devotion to her beloved pet Tommie Turtle had been publicly celebrated and entwined with her reputation in the community. Her humble nature and modestly sized art works, her quirky combinations of elements, her recognition of local settings, all made her one of ‘us’, a regular person, doing what she loved, finding contentment and joy in creating art to be shared with others."
