Nancy Rourke is a Deaf oil painter who works in the De'VIA (Deaf View Image Art) genre. Rourke's affinity for art dates to her childhood, when she started drawing as a means to communicate with her parents. Though she has created art for over forty years, Rourke's present style evolved in 2010 when her artwork began reflecting the Deaf View/Image Art (De'VIA) themes of affirmation, resistance and liberation. In the book, Van Manen not only explains the origins of Rourke's paintings, but also accounts for her remarkable success as an artist in the years since adopting De'VIA themes. [James W. Van Manen; (2014) 201 pages; soft cover]
