Nancy Breakstone is a Connecticut-based photographer who calls herself a “water-woman.” Oceans inspire her artistically, and water sports contribute to her physical and emotional well-being. She has travelled to beaches around the world, including Playa Negra in Costa Rica where she took photos of the intricate patterns in the sand. These photos became the basis for her series Impressions in the Sand. Her work has been exhibited at the Carriage Barn Arts Center in New Canaan, Connecticut; the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts; the Barrett Art Center in Poughkeepsie, New York; and the Limner Gallery in Hudson, New York. A solo exhibit of her work was held at the Gallery at Grain Surfboards in Amagansett, New York.
