Nancy Ferro began her studies, with Ruth Harrison, while at The Hockaday School, in Dallas. She continued at the teachers college she attended in Nacogdoches, Texas, Stephen F. Austin University, graduating with a BA degree in Education, Art, and French. When time would permit she attended The University of Dallas, Irving, Texas, on scholarship, for both an MA and an MFA in Drawing and Printmaking. Here she studied with Juergen Strunck as her major professor.
She enjoys working with a multi media and textural approach, containing layers of paper, drawing, found objects, and paint, most often beeswax. She enjoys gathering, cutting, pasting, drawing, and painting. She has had exhibits, both gallery and museum, one person and multi person, both in state and out of state. She has been included in several national and international publications. She has reached out in the area of curation, and teaching workshops on many levels. She is particularly proud of a large gallery for student work that opened for all of the art students at Highland Park High School. She engaged the help of Highland Park Arts, HP Arts, and the Principal at the time, Robert Albano for space, and financial support . While there, she also found a large exhibiting space, off campus, for yearly shows at Half Price Books in Dallas. This was for her AP and Printmaking Students. She continued to teach as well as make art until very recently. Now she enjoys art making solely.
