Nancy Good was born in Texas and has lived and worked in Las Vegas since 2011. Her creative pursuits over the past three decades have been heavily influenced by travels to Australia, Africa, and Vietnam; a childhood in Japan; adult life as an artist, photographer, musician, fly-fishing guide, backpacker, writer, and teacher in Montana, Nevada, California, Tennessee, and Illinois; along with her eclectic DNA, revealing connections with cultures the world over. A common thread through Good’s work is how she employs materials and tools of modern times while playfully incorporating the aesthetics of ancient cultures, including symbols and primitive mark-making.
Ms. Good’s bingo ball is located on the New York-New York Brooklyn Bridge.
