Nancy Burson was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1948. She studied painting at Colorado Women's College from 1966-68. After school, she moved to New York and became interested in interactive art. She collaborated with MIT computer engineers Tom Schneider and David Petty to create an aging machine in 1981. She also worked with Cambridge computer scientists Richard Carling and David Kramlich, whom she married. Burson has since utilized this technology to create composite photographs of leaders, stars, world races, and everyday people. Her works are available through ClampArt gallery in New York.
