As 2020 slowly dissolves, I find myself grateful for my supporters, family and friends. Thank you. Hope you have a lovely holiday, and Happy New Year.
'Tempest Tiara' is a new piece in my series "You should see me in a Crown" - As I get ready for two shows in the Spring of 2021, I am filled with inspiration as I spend endless amounts of time alone with my thoughts as we all have been doing. I wish you all more creative journeys in 2021, more love, more friendships, and of course more happiness! Love, Nancy & Picasso
Commissioned by Inspired Interiors - I was challenged with making 5 figures - mother, fiancee, two sons, and her grand-daughter. Personality started to reveal itself once I found patterns to use for each figure. Scrolls for the girls, and linear patterns for the boys.

I had the pleasure of meeting Manvi 2 years ago - a beautiful up and coming writer from India. Coincidentally she works at a company I freelanced for in the past. She wanted to write a story for International Women's Day. We Skyped, fell in love with each other (not literally), and made an instant connection. This year she writes about 'Real Life Heroes' and asked me to be a part of it. Click picture below and enjoy! Thank you Manvi!
"Real Life Heroes is a social initiative, a collection of personal journeys of people – who have carefully preserved the ‘spark’ they’re born with, who have dared to turn all the incoming possibilities into successful endeavors, who possess unflinching confidence and who are unconventional at their roots."
