About Nancy Lalicon

Nancy Lalicon is a multi-media sculptor specialized in making botanically accurate paper flowers and plants, and in facilitating workshops for community art organizations and local groups around Toronto and the GTA. From Peonies to Jupiter’s Beard to the Blazing Star, Nancy has mastered the intricate art of creating environmentally friendly paper replicas; a modern-day, three-dimensional take on botanical drawing.
