Peoplescapes: My Story from Purging to Painting
By Nancy Calef with Jody Weiner

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.
