Author
Nancy Easter White grew up in rural Virginia, where her love for art began. As a child, she spent hours sketching, painting, and making little sculptures using natureís craft supplies. While attending the University of Virginia, her coursework veered toward English and the arts. She graduated with a bachelor of arts in English, from which she began an editorial career. Still not satisfied, Ms. White completed her graduate work at Savannah College of Art and Design, earning a master of fine arts degree in historic preservation. The inspiration for her graduate thesis and her passion for architectural photography came when she turned onto King Street in Beaufort and was awestruck by the front faÁade of the First African Baptist Church. Since that day, she has continued to pursue this passion and has produced a collection of photos of stately mansions, cozy cottages, architectural landmarks, and the numerous attractions that Beaufort, South Carolina, has to offer in The Majesty of Beaufort. Presently, Nancy Easter White owns her own photography business in the South Carolina Lowcountry, specializing in architectural, portrait, and fine-art images. She loves to run and garden and enjoys the peacefulness and overall presence of her home framed by tremendous oak trees.
