Hello! My name is Nancy Hawes and I’ve always loved anything crafty and creative. When I was a child,
I painted shells and rocks and decoupaged anything that didn’t move. As a teenager, I would sell my creations in local boutiques and I even added homemade jewelry to my sales. After getting married and raising four boys, I had the opportunity to further pursue my love for creating and made all sorts of crafts to be sold at local craft shows. Later on, I landed the display designer position for A.C. Moore where I was fortunate enough to create all sorts of fun projects. Customers were able to learn all about my projects through the classes I taught o ered by the store. Most recently, I had the opportunity to be apart of the design team for Imagine Crafts where I had the challenge of coming up with fun techniques and projects for their customers. My real passion is working with paper, paints, mixed media, stamps and ink so I start- ed teaching in local scrapbooking stores where I taught anything from card making to layouts to canvas or anything that needs a fresh touch. The best part about teaching, for me, I love is inspiring my students to try new techniques and to think outside of the box. Recently I joined the Perfect Paint Design Team and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I just love working with their rich, creamy, shimmery paints and plasters. The variety of colors just inspire me to create !! I can’t seem to use enough of the bright gold. It is beau- tiful on everything! I need gallons of it! I hope to inspire you with creative projects that you will be able to recreate yet add your own spin to your masterpieces. I am currently on the Perfect Paint Design team.
