About UniquesByNancyLee

On Etsy since 2018

From seed to success! Cultivating and harvesting a dream!

I am a self-taught paper-image collage and decoupage artisan. I also hand-sew a variety of pillows, napkins, doll clothes and dollhouse accents, accessories, and finishing touches. I am devoted to the re-purpose of existing items by rethinking, re-imagining, and recreating them into unique possibilities. Many of my items aim to resurrect and revitalize hands-on three dimensional pastimes that contribute to holistic well-being and personal welfare.
I cherish a lifetime involvement in all my media, but only publicly debuted my craft in 2012, earning a "Best in Show" at the Moore Park Art Show for my tri-fold screen, "The Maine Frame." I also earned an Honorable Mention at the 2015 Norway Arts Festival for my trio of decoupaged vases, "Three Endowed."
I have moved from years of craft shows and spaces in antique/craft group shops to an online presence in order to reach a wider audience. I want everyone to be able to enjoy my pieces and I look forward to fulfilling dreams of one-of-a-kind items people can call their own.
Offering open-ended children's items absent of gender specificity is important to me. All children's items can be enjoyed equally by all genders. I have worked in, engaged in, and interacted with the childcare field for 18 years, and I am a strong advocate for play as the main standard of development in children. You will find an eclectic variety of children's items in my portfolio, from craft boxes and game boxes to toolboxes and puppet theaters, yet I am especially fond of recreating outstanding dollhouses. All "Uniques by Nancy Lee" children's items contribute to free expression and build on all domains of child development.
Fostering adult pastimes and methods of relaxation and free expression is also important to me. You will find items of diversity and creativity to match any person or group of people. There are items to encourage creativity or urge the pursuit of something new!
I am happy to be offering my vision to others. Remember to follow your dream!

Please contact me with any questions or need for further information about any item. I will be debuting a doll line in 2023 and intend to finally create and activate a separate website, "Uniquely Nancy Lee" after a long hiatus due to the pandemic years.
