Hi, I’m NancyDee
I am a found object assemblage artist and jewellery designer. I create wall sculptures, 3D sculptures and brooches from metal, wood, tiles and plastic that I pick up off the streets of cities where I live or travel.
My art is inspired by a strong interest in sustainability through repurposing and upcycling. My works have been described variously as ‘quirky’, ‘imaginative’, ‘environmentally aware’, ‘industrial’ and ‘geometric’.
You can read a recent interview with me, and follow me on Instagram at @nancydeesculptures and @nancydeebrooches. I am also the facilitator for Creativity Cluster. You can view the Creativity Cluster website or follow us on Instagram at @creativitycluster.
