February 2021 3D Featured Artist Nancy Green
Nancy Green combines her love of color and tropical imagery in her art. She spent part of her childhood on St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands, and has lived in Fort Myers for over 40 years. She majored in Fine Art and Education at Indiana University, and has a master’s degree in Art Education from The University of South Florida. Nancy taught elementary art for many years in Lee County. Encouraging artistic expression and the use of different art techniques helped promote the love of art in her students.
Nancy has always enjoyed doing ceramics, watercolor and acrylic painting. She now specializes in fused glass, which combines the vibrant colors of paint and the glaze and firing techniques of ceramics. “It is a fun surprise to open the glass kiln after each creation,” she says.
