Nancy Winn is a fiber and paper-mache artist. Her animal sculptures may be viewed at her website.
Nancy’s “critters” are lifelike, amusing, and made from “unwanted” materials. Lucky for us, Nancy also extends her creativity and art to hooking rugs. Here’s what she said about her inspiration for hooking a Mickey Mouse postcard.
I worked for Wilson Learning in the 1980’s. The President, Larry Wilson, presented employees who’d reached a one-year milestone with a gold Mickey Mouse watch. He told us, “When you check the time, this watch will remind you to have fun!” While California is more than Hollywood, Mickey Mouse is a global and endearing icon for fun.
