‘For me, creating something beautiful isn’t enough, I believe that true art is about creating connections. So I create pieces that help people transform their relationships with nature, themselves and even their own memories. My work exists to help people who are looking for pieces of art that come to life, both through its story and through its medium. It’s impossible to appreciate art in a hurry. So by its very existence, what I do helps create space for mindfulness. And even though every piece of work is unique and beautiful, what I see myself ultimately doing is helping people create a reason to pause, reflect and remember. So every day when I begin my work, I do so with the intention to remind people to slow down and remember what’s really important in life. I see my work as a small but significant part of the healing process that takes place when we reconnect with ourselves, with nature and with each other.’ – Nancy Tschetner For over two decades, Nancy has developed a distinctive style that relies on the use of natural materials to create three-dimensional depth and texture. With over 120 different shades and structures of sand, each grain becomes part of a larger image that represents the strength and vision that can be achieved when we come together. Nancy’s pieces often incorporate mixed media, such as crushed glass and gold leaf, to highlight certain details and colors not available through sand alone.
