I’m Nancy Breakstone

I’m a waterwoman. I’ve spent the last 50+ years on the water: windsurfing, sailing and for the last eight years stand up paddleboarding.  I see the beauty of our waters both on the beach and on the ocean. And I’ve always been an artist, too. As a child I painted landscapes and water fowl. As an adult I have embraced photography, both of the objective and the abstract. As I walk the beaches during my travels my eye is taken to sights one may not normally see and I  remember them forever through my photographs.
