I asked Nancy to introduce herself by answering a few questions...here is what she had to say:
Q. What is your favorite Technique?
A. Machine stitching! I can hardly do a project without it!
Q. Where did you learn to design?
A. I've always been interested in art and design, and I learned a lot in college art courses like Art History and Principles of Design. Other than that, I'm just self-taught by looking at the work of designers I love.
Q. What influences your design choices?
A. Women's fashion greatly influences my choices. I'm always inspired by new trends, prints, and textures in fashion magazines.
Q. Who are your artsy inspirations?
A. My favorite artist is Alphonse Mucha, so I try to put a little bit of Art Noveau and organic lines in all my projects. As far as other artists, I really admire Loretta Grayson, Sylvia Ji, and Tara McPherson.
Q. What do you enjoy doing besides crafting?
A. I love to watch sci-fi with my hubby, play games with family and friends, and I love to read.
