Nancy's Artwork

Me  I have a background in Design including a Diploma and a BA (Hons) degree, and a career working in, and then teaching, Art and Design.   My current works are mainly drawings and fused glass, a response to an image that can be landscape, figurative, natural form or abstract. My drawings are an increasingly significant aspect of my recent work, and often provide inspiration for my glass art.
Fused glass provides the opportunity to develop more 3-dimensional aspects in my work, in particular working with layers of paint and glass granules and powders on glass before fusing.
Occasionally my work is textiles-based, in the form of stitch, collage and needle-felting.
My drawings have become a significant aspect of my work, in particular working with charcoal and chalk pastels
 
Examples of my work are always on display and available to purchase at the studio (please feel free to call in and view), and I exhibit my work regularly.
