She and Greg Opp have raised a family in Hudson, MA.  Nancy desired to return to her art interests while her children were growing up. She took courses at the Danforth Museum of Art, Worcester Art Museum and studied in small groups. Nancy earned a Basic Art Certificate from the Danforth Museum School in Framingham, MA. This inspired her to study studio art and art history at Framingham State (College) University where she successfully completed nine courses.

Nancy’s teaching experience began with a few students in her home. Later, she taught art in several after school programs in Hudson and Sudbury.

She worked for the Assabet Valley Chamber of Commerce for 5 years. Also, Nancy was employed at St. Michaels School in Hudson, MA. She taught 7th & 8th grade art for 2 years until the school was closed.

Nancy’s pastels, watercolor and mixed media collage work were in juried and non-juried exhibits. She moved on to making art quilts with a renewed interest in fabric including batiks. Her interest in fashion sewing resumed. She began to combine her art knowledge with sewing and fashion which led her into a new direction.
