Nancy Westerberg (2017)

Nancy Westerberg
Nancy Westerberg used to be an occupational therapist. Some 20 years ago she embarked on a new and exciting chapter in her life. She was then 60 years old, retired and able to devote her time, at least, to her “first love” – being creative and working with all kinds of materials. Some quite ordinary materials, such as textiles, plastic, yarn and paper, some bought, some found.

The process was and still is making thoughts, memories, and experiences into objects. Objects such as full-size children’s clothing, books and documents, toys and tools. All are made from many types and colours of paper. Some are inscribed with words, quotes and stories.

Nancy Westerberg sees the gathering of, caring for and honouring her memories as an important process. A process which enriches and enables mastering today and helps shape tomorrow.
