North Carolina based artist Nannette Gatti Davis has been designing and fabricating in metals since 1991. After graduating with her degree in Jewelry Metalsmithing, she began her career working with metals in Chicago, where her collaboration with various designers inspired her to start making her own collections.
She is a metals design instructor at Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem, where she works to foster a love and appreciation for art and art education.
After her years of creating and teaching she has turned her attention to the world of fashion design and has been a participating designer in several Runway Fashion Week Shows.
Nannette's collections draw inspiration from her training in graphic design which allows for a unique combination of her love of line, light, texture, and form. With these fundamental design elements in mind she uses a variety of techniques to create pieces with tactile exploration of layers and materials.
