Tabas has studied extensively, including training at PAFA and with world-renowned figurative artist Bert Silverman

Victoria Donohue reviewed Nancy in The Philadelphia Inquirer and stated, “Her work consistently has punch to it.” Marie Fowler of the Main Line Times also gave Nancy a favorable review stating “Tabas, like French Impressionist Master Claude Monet appears to explore the same motif under different conditions of light and or seasons.”

She serves on the Board of Main_Line Line Art Center and is Chair of the Women’s Board of the Penn Museum.
