Artist Feature: Nancy Cushwa

Updated: May 19, 2022

Nancy Cushwa "Magical House"

"Dresses are part of my psyche. When I was growing up, all little girls wore dresses most of the time. I did have a pair of overalls to play outside. It wasn't until the mid 60's that women started to wear pants to work and even wore blue jeans on a regular basis." - Nancy Cushwa

Nancy Cushwa is a full time artist and retired art educator. Her work is inspired by her childhood and exploring traditional gender roles, while still maintaining a breath of whimsey. Her dress sculptures are constructed of wax and Japanese rice paper, as well as found pieces of nature.

You can contact Nancy by emailing Gallery Dzialo.
