Artisan weaver Nancy Fike lives with her three children in Asarefa, near Fanuifa in Goroka. She adores weaving the Kundu Drum and Skin Pig patterns, particularly in blues and browns. Separated from her husband and now the sole earner for her family, Nancy uses the money she earns to support her children’s education and care for an elderly parent. Nancy has the sweetest nature with a gentle, calm presence.
