Ann Shelton

A Spoonful of Sugar

$60.00

In 1957 Nancy Martin staked out a humble claim to fame in an act both mundane and extraordinary—obtaining a mortgage to build her own home. Purportedly the first single woman to do so in Wellington, Nancy is listed on her mortgage as a spinster.

The forces of banking, gender politics, ghosts, and architecture flow through this project—their confluence made visible in Nancy’s house.
