Nancy Lichtenwald is an artist who lives in Neenah, Wisconsin. She has been creating art work using art markers since 2006. Her passion began while teaching extracurricular art courses to elementary students who also used art markers for the brunt of their work. Previously she worked as a feature story food writer for a local newspaper. Her love for writing shifted to poetry after she began applying it to her art work. A life of travel, photography, VW Bus and VW Thing roadtrips, and performing in the "Jim 'n' Nancy" music duo continue to inspire her.
