Nancy Nelson-Brotz is an East Coast native who has been part of the arts family in Madison for years through her art education work at Rabbit Run Community Arts Association, the Painesville Recreation Department and the Painesville Senior Center. Nancy earned her Bachelor's Degree in Art from California University of Pennsylvania, where she specialized in printmaking. As fate would have it, she immediately abandoned printmaking for stained glass. After teaching and creating Tiffany-method stained glass for years, she had many scraps, which has led her to her current obsession - mosaics.
She has won many awards for her mosaic work (and even a clay piece).
Nancy currently teaches at Perry Public Library. The library has a free art program. Here are her class descriptions and schedule:
