Nancy Ferguson has been a resident of Warner Springs for nearly three decades. She is inspired by native wildlife, in particular historic uses of plants of the area. You might run into her seasonally as she volunteers for Anza Borrego Desert State Park with her cohorts in the Botany Society. Nancy’s interest in textiles came while she was employed as a Counselor working on the graveyard shift at Southwest Juvenile Hall in Murrieta, CA. Crochet proved an ideal means of staying awake all night. Since retirement in 2020, her work has flourished to include wearable art in the form of shawls, hats, bags, and more. Most are made from natural fibers from sustainable sources in South America and India. She is always keen to expand her skills, and is currently at work on some decorative fine art pieces.
