Thank you for visiting Nellenby. Nellenby is a fictional world created by artist NancyB where her diverse collection of animal characters live and interact. It is a place to visit for a while and enjoy the quirky, gentle humor, view the charming details with an old fashioned feel, and let your imagination join with hers.
About the Artist
NancyB is a trained artist, with a degree from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She grew us with the influence of family artists just outside of Boston.
Besides creating animal characters, she paints in a traditional style, in oils, and has sold and exhibited in the Boston area for years.
More recently she has been exploring mixed media and abstract art making. Inspired by Picasso is a series with collage and mixed media techniques.
Nancy is the President of Arts Wayland, a non-profit arts organization in Wayland, Massachusetts. She and member artists created the W Gallery in the Wayland Town Center in a space lent to Arts Wayland for community art and music.

About the Collections
The collection ‘Inspired by Classics’ are illustrations I create that remind us of the classic children’s books of the past, and of cartoons created with lithography for books and magazines of the late 1800s. They live in a fictional world, "Nellenby".
'Inspired by Picasso', is based on interpretations of Picasso’s art. These designs make unique products that will fit well in a contemporary home, as well as hip personal accessories.
‘Inspired by Tradition’ uses paintings and drawings created in a traditional style. From oil paintings of still life in the studio, or from plein aire landscape painting.
I hope you enjoy the products and art as much as I enjoy making them.
