Nora Blansett, Windsor, Canda Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement I live in Atlantic Canada, have wonderful children, and I’ve been working as an artist for almost twenty years. My primary focus has always been whimsical illustration and intricate design. My designs were strongly influenced by my years overseas in the Middle East, and of course my refusal to grow up keeps the magic of faeries alive.
My primary mediums are my camera, pen and ink, watercolours and watercolour pencils. I also create collectible art dolls, beaded jewelry, pyrography and miniature quilts.
