Nancy Norton

Art, in many forms, has always been a part of Nancy’s life.

As a teacher, she encouraged her students to include art in their work. As a small business owner, she created a space filled with the work of artists, designed individual gift baskets and worked with cosmetics for burns and scars. Upon arriving in Tucson twelve years ago, she finally had the time and freedom to pursue her own art.

There is a strong art community in Tucson that encourages personal growth through classes, visiting national artists, opportunities to exhibit, and art organizations. Experimentation with watercolor, acrylics, collage, and assemblage while learning the principles of art and design encouraged further growth in mixed media. Tucson Gem and Mineral Show continue to provide inspiration for the creation of unique jewelry. This is especially fun since Nancy has a jewelry background. It is her desire to create pieces in jewelry and art that make a statement and remain timeless.

She is always inspired by the work of others. Their creations allow Nancy to share space with them for a moment. The warmth and changing colors of the desert continue to influence her work.
