Nancy Erickson lived in a mountain canyon near Missoula with deer, bears. and cougars, who have been there for centuries. Her fabric works reflect the connection we all have with one another, with the land, and with what is left of wildness. As in all the work Nancy does, it is the wild animals who are the seers.
