Nancy Bernardo loves to read, and she loves to design.
As an undergraduate she chose English as her major and Art as her minor. When Apple computers made the scene she dabbled in graphic design and fell in love. Afterwards, she completed her MFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While there, she combined her interests of literature, history and the body to create both aesthetically pleasing and disturbing images of the multiple inheritances – social and biological – of contemporary women.
Now, she teaches graphic design at Loyola University in New Orleans, is a self- professed type nerd, collects ephemera from the Victorian time period through the mid twentieth century. She spends as much of her time as possible making collages, drawings and mixed media art. Many of her themes center around the female form in advertising, pop culture and everyday life. She loves manipulating editorial language directed at women and playing with subversive messages.
