Later she was a counselor at McHenry County College where she co-founded the art show,“Woman’s Works” with the group Workshop for Contemporary Art as a part of Women’s History Month.This show has grown for twenty-five years to become the prestigious national juried event that it is today. Nan applies most years and has been accepted in approximately twenty of the twenty-five shows.
Nan lives with Jim May, her storyteller/writer husband, in rural McHenry County and every Spring they lead a storytelling, writing and art workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico.
