Artist Nancy House’s masks in ceramics and papier maché show the
influence of her travels in Russia, China, Africa, and Southeast Asia.
She began her creative journey at a young age, exploring nature
and its vast elements while growing up along the San Juan River in
Colorado. Her art reflects a close relationship with nature, especially
water. Currently, Nancy teaches papier maché at College of the
Mainland’s Lifelong Learning Program and is an active participant
in the local art scene, including co-authoring the recently published
Galveston Art League: A Century of Island Art,
serving on the Board
of Directors at the Galveston Art League, and coordinating the Texas
