Nancy Hooten

Nancy Hooten of Savannah, Georgia was an art teacher and college administrator for more than thirty years before to becoming a full-time artist in 1997. Embroidering with seed beads her work often takes a 3-dimensional quality, coming off the flat surface usually associated with embroidery. I saw her work for the first time at the Jepson Center for the Arts in 2007 and it is amazing. I was very surprised by the dimension of pieces, consistently more sculptural than flat. The work also has a wonderful narrative quality with a bit of humor and irony thrown in.
