Nancy Willis is a London based artist whose work includes painting, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, and moving image.

Nancy has exhibited in the Whitechapel Open, Diorama Art Gallery, Laing Art Gallery, and BBC Television Centre. She was artist in residence at Hammersmith Hospital and Byam Shaw School of Art, and in 2003 received the Arts Council Innovate Award. Her film 'Elegy for the Elswick Envoy', commissioned by Channel 4, won 'Best Documentary' at film festivals in the USA, Australia, and Africa.

‘In my art I explore my personal experience of life and disability. In telling my own story I hope to touch on the joys and sorrows we all share.’

After a period of working with moving image, animation and digital works, Nancy has returned to a simple, traditional medium: ‘Recovering from a serious illness and a long period of hospitalisation, I wanted to reconnect with the world: to draw from life with pen and ink, to be out in the air and look at nature… This is how the ‘Grazing’ collection was born.’

Nancy has been asked to contribute ten of her key works to the National Disability Arts Collection and Archives. Her work is also featured on the Shape Artists website.
