Nancy G. Cook's art has a graphic quality that provides an experience of intimacy with highly exaggerated scale close-up views of nature, created with layered and embellished fabrics. Her current series, Seed Play, began mid 2008 and focuses on plant seeds and fruits, as metaphors for life's riches. Working directly from collected seed specimens, her designs are based on research and sketching to clarify what is architecturally unique for each species. Her hand-guided machine quilting creates lines and texture reminiscent of bas relief sculpture. Recent work incorporates hand stitching for enrichment and details. While the series began with a focus on trees, her more recent work has incorporated shrub, vine and perennial plant seeds.  In addition to creating one of a kind textile art, Nancy Cook lectures, teaches workshops, consults and does commission work. She has been working in this medium since 1994.
