Nancy Pickard: “People are always asking me why I use so many different materials, why I work in both abstract and figurative ways, why I make jewellery as well as ceramics and paintings.
As I see it, there are no rules: the only ‘right’ way to be an artist is your own way. There are thousands of ‘right’ ways to make a piece – there are great figurative works, great landscapes and great abstract pieces. Why not have a go at anything?
And you can move on: I’m constantly crazy in love with whatever I am currently doing – but when it’s done, it’s done. What’s exciting is to try something new and see if you can make it work.
Nancy is a painter, jewellery maker, sculptor, and ceramicist. Her silver and enamel necklaces are priced from £85
