Nancy Purvis is a quilter and artist living in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband and two children. Always a creative, it was not until recently after exploring quilt making and publishing her quilt book, Quilting from Every Angle, that she noticed what fascinated her most was the design process and the patterns found within the quilts she was making. It was the very tactile nature of hand making, exploration of pattern making, and digital manipulation that sparked her interest in visual art and surface design. She began experimenting with different mediums, which has resulted in a place of patterns and a heavy dose of black.
