Nancy Oline Klimp

Author
Growing up in San Francisco, Nancy explored nature’s nearby forests, rivers, mountains, and ocean shores of Northern California. Her studies in anthropology and psychology led to her understanding of nature’s healing power and her work as a psychotherapist. Living in the Salish Sea’s environs has set the landscape for these poetic happenings!

After returning to Molokai, he started painting scenes of the island and sold them at the local farmers market. As a self-taught artist, he has continued his passion.
