Welcome back to Nancy’s World! It’s been a few weeks since we last caught up with Nancy. She’s been a busy lady and, boy, do we have a lot of great news to fill you all in on.
This week, we’re going to be chatting with about new developments since the release of Grace and Frankie, Season 3.
OB: Alright, a lot has happened since the last post. What has life been like since Season 3 dropped on Netflix?
NR: It’s been a wonderful shit-show. To give you an example, my Mail Chimp (which my son Leo had set up for me a couple of months ago) used to have 3 subscribers. One of them was Leo, the other one was my son Ben- my oldest son, Sam, did not subscribe and one anonymous person. While I was on my trip to Miami, it went from 3 to, like two-hundred and forty-something subscribers. I was completely overwhelmed by that and I got lots of emails from people who really loved the work from the show and were touched and inspired by it.
OB: What have your interactions with your new fans been like?
NR: Very positive. I’ve gotten emails and calls from people wanting art. I’ve gotten emails from lots of young women. One in particular, her name is Ella and she’s a 14 year-old aspiring artist. We emailed back and forth and talked on the telephone. She couldn’t believe that I had called her back! She had all these sweet questions for me.
OB: What did you two talk about?
NR: It was so adorable! We talked about art! She had questions for me, I had questions for her; it was lovely. We talked about what it’s like to be an artist, what inspires us, etc!
OB: That’s so exciting to hear that you’re work is inspiring other artists. You’ve gotten even more press, too. You’ve been interviewed by a few online publications recently. What was that like?
NR: It happened so fast. I was like, “Ok, sure, Chicago Magazine and Variety!”. I have another interview with Artsy that should be out soon.
OB: So, you mentioned that there’s a lot of interest circulating around people wanting to buy specific pieces. Are you selling originals and prints?
NR: Yes! Just shoot me an email if you’re interested! I work with a wonderfully talented printer named Russell who makes very bright, exhibit quality prints of my paintings.
