Originally trained as a medical illustrator, Nancy is now an engraver specialising in figurative subjects. Work ranges in scale from small crystal blocks, vessels and sculptures to large wall mounted pieces, often incorporating gold leaf. Nancy is developing an individual style, and is interested in experimentation. She is pursuing a contemporary approach to engraving using traditional skills and techniques and is an elected Fellow of the Guild of Glass Engravers.
Recent work is a series of small panels entitled 'Fresco boys'. These are engraved, gilded and painted portraits, using a layered glass technique. Nancy has also been experimenting with stop motion animation and produced a short engraved and gilded video (look for 'memory cloud' on youtube). This accompanies the wall piece 'memory cloud', a large scale work made from an assembly of small microscope slides, mounted and framed together.
