Nancy Sutcliffe (born 1957 in Yorkshire, UK) has a BA Hons in Design specialising in illustration. She worked as a medical illustrator before becoming a glass engraver, and her early training and interest in anatomy has informed much of her work in glass.
Through her experiments with gold leaf and how it might be applied to engraved glass, Nancy has developed a characteristic style.
Nancy has work in public and private collections. She exhibits internationally, most notably as a finalist in the Toyama International Glass Exhibition 2018 in Japan and in 2014 at the Coburg Glass Prize, Germany.
She is a tutor in drill engraving at West Dean College, UK, and has also taught at Boda Glasbruk, Sweden; Bild-Werk Frauenau, Germany; and the Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass, New York, USA.
