Artist Biography

Nicole Rowe was born in 1982 and now lives in Centurion, South Africa. In 2004 she obtained her diploma in Fine and Applied Arts at Tshwane University of Technology and completed her B-Tech Degree in 2008 together with a diploma in Glass. Nicole is a mixed media artist whose technique is untraditional: she uses textured, digitally printed, spray painted or sandblasted glass sheets and combines it with an array of mediums. Workshops attended at Ngwenya Glass Factory reinforced her love for glass.

In 2014 Nicole was selected as one of the Top 10 winners of ABSA L'Atelier. She was sponsored by Telkom for the ITWeb Brainstorm Calendar Competition in 2015. During the same period Micelle Coetsee wrote two blogs about her art, titled: 'Nicole Rowe - The FREEDOM to be' and 'Nicole Rowe - Passionate Conceptual Artist'.

Her first solo exhibition 'A Beautiful Mind' was held in 2015 at Art Lovers 1932. Nicole was selected in 2016 to take part in an exhibition of Contemporary SA Glass Artists at The Pretoria Arts Association, titled 'Out of the fire, and into the light'; and again in 2018 with 'Back to the future'.

Nicole started exploring the digital field in 2019, printing onto clear glass or paper. She was invited by Johnny de Beer to exhibit at The Viewing Room Art Gallery for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing exhibition titled 'Star Sailors'. She has frequently exhibited at ArtBox Gallery. Nicole aspires to take part in The Visual Art Open Prize 2021, an UK and internationally based art competition.
