Welcome to Liberty Grove Paper Arts. I am Nancy Akerly, a paper artist passionate about everything paper: Origami, nontraditional paper folding, box making, and bookbinding and creation. I also teach paper marbling and create unique papers using paste paper techniques. We use our papers to make our own boxes out of bookboard, and to bind books, journals and notebooks.
I show my work at The Clearing Jensen Center and at The Meadows Gallery, in Sister Bay, as well as at several art shows each year. I teach classes and workshops in several places; please see the Calendar for this year’s offerings.
My business is named Liberty Grove Paper Arts after the township where my grandparent’s farm (now my daughter’s family farm) is located, just north of Sister Bay, WI. That is where, in the summers, I had the time to learn origami, play with ideas, write poetry and stories and dream big dreams - one of which was to spend all my time playing with paper! Dreams do come true!
