On Saturday, July 19, Nancy Calef will read from her illustrated memoir and present a slideshow of the paintings from the visual memoir Peoplescapes:
This transformational journey in words and 149 full color paintings and drawings, chronicles Nancy Calef's evolution from child model, suffering anorexia and bulimia, through recovery and maturation into a multi-disciplined artist renowned for her innovative "Peoplescapes:"
Driven by honest self-examination and daily commitment to convert her self-destructive energy into creative expression and physical exercise, Calef provides in these pages inspiration for others to help themselves transcend their emotional and physical obstructions. More than a cocktail table art book, Peoplescapes -- My Story From Purging To Painting is an around-the-world tale of self-discovery, courage, and love, at turns hilarious and heart-breaking, while Calef's luminous talent shines through.
"Nancy Calef is proof that we can all overcome life's difficulties and turn negative experiences into positive creativity. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about triumph over adversity, and finding one's own creative path and purpose." —Susan Barton, eBook Review Gal
