Nancy Lane has been creating since childhood. She started drawing at the age of six, when her mom gave her a teach-yourself-to-draw book. From there, her love of art grew as she continued to practice throughout her homeschooling years (pre-K through 9th grade) and took multiple art classes throughout her high school years. She studied communication design at the University of North Texas, but ended up graduating with a completely different major! After living overseas for nearly a decade, she and her husband and their two children moved to Texas where Nancy rekindled her love of art and began to self-teach graphic design. She now owns Firefly Graphic Design, and specializes in illustration, graphic design, and web design. When Nancy isn’t creating, she enjoys taking walks, cooking, telling silly stories to her kiddos, and dreaming of the future with her hubby.
