Nancy Calef's transformational journey chronicles in words and pictures her evolution from child model, suffering anorexia and bulimia, through her recovery and maturation into a multi-disciplined artist renowned for her innovative "Peoplescapes:" vibrant plein-air colors applied to exaggerated snapshots of the human condition, together producing a remarkable narrative on issues facing society.  Much 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.
