“I watched people a they exited the lecture hall after your “Upcycled Style” talk. I saw refreshed and happy faces. The first words that came out of peoples months were: “incredible”, “amazing”, “awesome”! I truly feel that you connected with your audience and provided us with an experience, not just a lecture.”
Kristen Klein, Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts

“So many people told me how much they enjoyed your presentation and how they are inspired to do more. One thing I found very useful to this particular audience is how you explained creating your artwork as “solving problems/challenges”. I also appreicate how you relate to the audience and the background about your career changes/choices. I believe those things made it more real and possibly attainable through the college students eyes.”
Mary Hoffman, Adams State College

“Nancy presented SUCH a GREAT talk at TEDxABQ…she is an inspiration to us all to think more about what we throw away and how we can ALL do better by re-using and re-cycling our resources…”
