Nancy Jaffe was educated at the Art Students League in New York City, as well as the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut, where she received her degree in Art History and Art Education.

When Nancy paired her fine art training with painting on silk, the results were very healing for her recovery from breast cancer. She paints with the hope that her inspiration from Nature, along with the use of bright colors, send a healing and hopeful message to others.

“When I paint with French Dyes on silk, I am reminded that I have the power to create something special in this world that will be happy, beautiful, and peaceful. For me, silk painting is meditation, and the colors are the reflections of my inner soul. This art form represents a new beginning and a new challenge.”
