Nancy DeHerrera Crochet

About the Art

I’ve been taking pictures for most of my life. I got my business license years ago, and have enjoyed every minute of having a small home business and working for myself. To say the least, it is very empowering. I love the great outdoors and specialize in landscape photos, but have a special eye for portraits. I hope you all come visit me and my work at the annual Questa Art Tour and the Rio Costilla Studio Tour.



Buenas dias. My name is Nancy A DeHerrera Crochet. My business name is Sangre De Cristo Photos, named after our majestic mountain range, full of color and life all year round.

I was born in Embudo, and raised in Costilla on a large farm, along with my 7 siblings. My awesome parents, Valdemar and Consuelo DeHerrera, are both native New Mexicans. I’ve a great husband since 1955, Steve Crochet, one son and two grandchildren.

Being raised in northern New Mexico in itself carries lots of meaning, knowing about our traditions and values, and living by them. Speaking our Spanish language is very important, as is respect for our elders, God, and the American flag.
