Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Nancy Tschetner Artist

In her 21-year artistic journey, Nancy Tschetner has refined her style, employing over 150 sand pigments to depict nature’s diversity and cherished memories. Her pieces often incorporate mixed media, such as crushed glass and shades of gold leaf, to highlight certain details and colors not available through sand alone. Her artwork transforms with each passing moment, as the light catches the glimmering sand and the radiant glow of gold leaf. The shimmering textures and layered depth of sand breathe vitality into subjects, bringing treasured memories to life and infusing homes with hope, love, and a natural radiance. Each grain contributes to a greater whole, mirroring our collective strength when united.
