Nancy Pollock Studio

"For me, mosaic is like solving a puzzle of color and texture mathematically. It must also hold a story with a sense of whimsy and make me smile. "

Just after Nancy Pollock left Kansas for New York, a friend's child asked her if things in Kansas were really black and white. That was insightful. Pollock spent thirty colorful and creative years in New York City. Her friends were designers, actors, and architects, and she found her niche in a love of mathematical order. Weaving and knitting became her passion.

Following New York, she moved to a small coastal town in South Carolina. To keep busy, she made a mirror frame from broken dishes, then tiled the baths in her new home. Thus began a ten-year obsession with mosaic. She moved to Dallas in 2013, and has since made her home into her gallery and studio. She has begun to use fiber along with mosaic to create new forms with more vibrant color and texture.

Nancy Pollock's work has been featured in one-woman shows in South Carolina, Atlanta, and Florida; national mosaic exhibits in Chicago and LA; and invitational exhibits in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Massachusetts.
