In a lengthy and methodical process, she collects lawyer cane from her traditional Rainforest country, splits the cane into fine strips, and intricately weaves her one-off designs. A multi-faceted artist; Nancy’s paintwork is contrasting and engaging. Her ceramics are also rich, unique, and exceptionally detailed.
Nancy’s work has featured in the Story Place: Indigenous Art of Cape York & the Rainforest and the Woven Forms: Weavings from the Jumbun, Lockhart River, and Aurukun Communities exhibitions.
