Nan, at Hadrian’s Wall, in Northumberland, England.
20 May 2019.

October 2019. Home from my travels.

10 May 2019. At La Biennale, Venice. During Press Days: in the Italian Pavilion.

Nan is a writer, photographer and itchy-footed traveler. She trained as an architect, and worked for many years as a book publisher. These days, she wanders through England and Italy, and across America, in search of stories about architecture, art, landscapes and history. At home in New Hampshire, Nan also designs houses, interiors and gardens, along with heirloom-quality garden furniture, which she’s exhibited at London’s Chelsea Flower Show.

Praa Sands, Cornwall, England. 29 June 2018

Nan, in Norwich, Norfolk, England. YEP–this is how I look when I’m out and about, on a cold, drizzly English day: part Auntie-Mame-in-her-cat-eye-sunglasses/part 5-year-old-in-her-yellow-raincoat/with a bit of Queen-E-in-her-scarf thrown in/finished off with tough-boots-for-street-cred. Clearly, I dress for comfort, but I suppose that, with old age, comes license to look any way I want…..

Atop Box Hill, in Surrey….doing my Jane Austen research.

    You are related to Audrey Sochor? I loved her. I was a young actor at Fallen House Theater. She and I hit it off. Great friends. I never knew much about her or Arthur. I would love to chat! Paul Gallagher
