Nancy Biggins is the founder and CEO of Copper Hummingbird by Nancy Biggins®.
An accidental artist and entrepreneur, Nancy originally had a long career working with animals, and it was during her years as an animal keeper at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum that she designed and perfected her first bee-proof, drip-free hummingbird feeder. She went on to supply feeders to all of the US institutions that hold hummingbirds, and eventually, to sell to the public.
In the years since creating that first basic design, Nancy has gone on to create hummingbird feeders that are true works of art. She works primarily in copper, and often includes found and natural objects, fused glass, and torch-enameling.
Her company sells at in-person events, online, and wholesale.
