Born in Artesia, a section of Los Angeles, California on January 5, 1877 to parents Nathan Hanes Price and Avis Shaw, Nancy Price moved with her family to Arizona when she was a child.
During the 1890s she taught school there and taught herself to paint. After her marriage to Chester W. Conger, she lived in Arizona until the late 1920s. Returning to California, she settled in Riverside. Wanting one last look at Arizona, she died while visiting Globe in 1955. Her works include landscapes of the desert in Arizona and the High Sierra in California.
