Artist Biography

Nancy Billings, a New York native received her BFA in Fashion Design at Pratt Institute.  The main focus of her early career was teaching fiber arts to students from elementary school through college.  Her movement from fashion design to fiber art was a

natural transition using the same medium in new and innovative ways.  In recent years Nancy has included mixed media along with dyeing, painting and many other surface design techniques.  Nancy works through private galleries and interior designers.


Teaching

 Julia Richman HS  NYC

Florida International University- Associate Professor of Fashion Design

COPE School South-Volunteer teacher-Developed a Quilt Design & Construction curriculum for HS students

​​Partner my love of color and my passion for fabric and you will grasp my lifelong journey of creating art with fiber. I work extemporaneously while designing  using a variety of techniques such as dyeing, stitching, photography and mono-printing, always building on the step before. 

Some of my work “Skin Deep” parallels the fabric layers to the many layers of a person’s life and the stitching to the many directions and choices we make that can change our destinations.  Although each unique mini quilt may represents individuals, or the environment, the work tries to show their overall relationship to each other and the world around us, how we are all sometimes “hanging by a thread”. 

My work currently is designed to hang slightly away from the wall so the  fluctuation of wind and air can alter the movement of the pieces while projecting shadows on the wall.
