Nancy LeMay Bio

Nancy LeMay’s art career began at an early age at The High School of Art and Design in New York, where she excelled to the extent of wining a full scholarship to the School of Visual Arts.  After graduating with honors, Nancy continued to work at Visual Arts as a counselor.  Her career really got into high gear when she worked as a designer and illustrator at New York University, winning an Art Direction Award for her NYU School of Journalism logo design.

After NYU, Nancy became a computer graphics specialist for JCPenney, where she helped design Telaction, the first Interactive TV Shopping Mall.  She then worked at NBC on the “Today Show” and the “NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw.”

In Los Angeles, Nancy has worked for three television stations, KCOP, KNBC and KABC.  During her years in television she has been nominated fifteen times for Emmy Awards, winning five of them.  She also won four Broadcast Designers Association Awards, and three Associated Press Awards.  She is a member of the Television Academy, the Associated Press and the Art Directors Guild.

Paralleling her television work, Nancy has become a teacher of advanced computer graphics at Studio Arts.  She taught several academic classes in the Communications Studies Department at California State University in Los Angles, and has taught several courses at Oasis.  For eight years she has been teaching a Water Color Class at Rustic Canyon.

In the area of fine art, Nancy is represented by Freehand Gallery in Los Angeles, and Aarnun Gallery in Pasadena.  She won the Wings And Water Festival Poster Award at Cape May for her watercolor of Wild Geese, which is available as a print.  She won the Art Times Magazine Award at the Catherine Lorrilard Wolfe Art Club juried exhibition in New York. Her Prints and her Jewelry Designs are available on Ebay and Etsy respectively.

Publications include MacWeek, The Kiplinger Report and Planning Magazine.  Nancy’s Y2K Graphic, which won the Associated Press Award for Best Millennium Coverage, was reproduced in the Rockport Press book “White Graphics.”  The purpose of the book was to show how the top 100 designers of the 20th Century used white space in their graphic work.  Nancy was included in this most prestigious group for her work on the Millennium Program.  Her comment when she received the Award at the Associated Press Ceremony was, “It’s nice to receive an award that you can only win once every thousand years.”
