Nancy Ridenour- Recent Works

Nancy V. Ridenour spent her youth in Schenectady, NY, surrounded by a large family involved in the florist business.  Flowers and gardens were central to those years, which led to a major in biology while at Cornell University. The natural science thread has been strong throughout her career as a biology teacher at Ithaca High School, in her personal life of gardening and flower arranging, and now her focus in retirement on digital artistic photography.

Nancy retired in 2005 after 32 years of teaching and administration at Ithaca High School.  In 2006, she took classes in photography and Photoshop at TC3. That experience enlightened her retirement and developed into a second career as a photographic artist.

The initial floral subject was the lotus flower that grows in her pond. That focus expanded to other Flowers, Macro photography, Buildings at Cornell and NYC, Cement Sculptures located in the Cornell Arboretum, Florida Birds, Travel, and Zoo animals. Floral images are on the walls of this show.

Nancy is a member of The State of the Art Gallery, Ithaca Garden Club, and Campus Club at Cornell, as well as professional science teacher organizations.
