About Nancy email@example.com
Nancy Pickard was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1963. She was raised and educated in the Channel Islands and then at the Central School of Art, London and University of Wales Institute, Cardiff. She moved to West Cornwall in 2002 and made her home in a 200 year old converted Wesleyan Chapel. Nancy is now based in Buckfastleigh in Devon.
An all-round artist who cannot be categorised - painter, artist, jewellery maker, sculptor, ceramicist - Nancy finds the history and landscape of the region a great inspiration. Her sculptural jewellery is made by enamelling onto hand cut pieces of silver. Each piece is unique and she never makes two pieces the same.
The paintings and wall pieces are striking and bold. Nancy’s understanding of all kinds of art makes her work refreshing and original.
