New large pieces coming soon!
With some of the festivals coming up, I am currently working on some large pieces. The boat "shelf" in the picture is currently in our home, I have now gotten the outline shape cut out from 1/2" birch ply and will start to draw in the shelves and some items on shelves. This will be a totally flat piece for a wall hanging but "appearing" 3D.

Another Large item - this 36" horizontal piece of beach cottages! The frame is already waiting on it to be finished and inserted.

Another one which has been completed is this fabulous large beach window scene! The frame has been updated with a cleaner white paint now (not shown, but will update soon) You can just feel the breeze coming thru this window!

About UsAbout Us
Welcome to my website! I'm happy to have a place for everyone to visit, browse the creations I've made in the past along with items available for purchase. Feel free to message me on any items you are interested in that may have already sold, I will be able to give you a quote for item & shipping.

Pyrography (burning on wood, leather, paper, etc. with hot metal point - woodburning) is an old art and one that I am happy to have found. I love creating art with a nature feel, but thrilled to have clients send me photos & new ideas they would like to commission.

Feel free to message me for more information on any piece here or if you would like to have a special order created for you. Anything that is marked "Sold" may possibly be able to be re-created! Look around the page and head over to "Recent Posts" if you would like to read a little more about the things we do and where your artwork is created!

Raised in a rural town in New Jersey, we moved to Daphne, AL in 1993. My love for the beach & local wildlife were quickly added to my love for mountain scenery.

Always wanting to create some type of art, I was intrigued with pyrography. Pyrography is “writing with fire” or more simply, woodburning. I purchased my first tool in December, 2014, and have not stopped burning since. I am a self-taught pyrographic artist. With no special training, I have learned many techniques.

My work has been on display at many large juried festivals in South Alabama & Mississippi. I have not only received very high regards for my work, but also many commission requests. Though I enjoy the wildlife & coastal art, I am never fearful to try something new when customers bring in their own designs.


Nanci (Artist) is always thinking up new ideas and designs to burn and loves getting suggestions from others
Jim (Creative Husband) that has supported me, helped me and taught me many things about woodworking & has some amazing design ideas!

 I received a beautiful lazy susan from my MN bestie Debbie Blackman. We moved from MN to FL and it was the perfect retirement gift. It is a wonderful piece of art that sits on my coffee table. The starfish, seahorses and turtles are a beautiful center display that I added a candle in the center that I change with the seasons. It is a very high quality, beautiful piece of artwork!"
