“I’m so thankful that life has given me the opportunity to express myself through art.”
Self-taught, Swedish Artist, Anne Felicie Nickels was born in 1964 in Malmö and today she lives and works in Hunneberga, county of Skåne. Her artistic career began in 2016 and she has since participated in over 20 group shows including 10 selected by a jury or balloting committee. Her work has been exhibited both in Sweden and other European countries.
Nickels' work belongs to private collectors in Sweden, Germany and the United Kingdom. Her art has also been purchased by several art associations in Sweden. She has permanent or temporary contracts with art galleries within Europe and is previously published in a number of books and magazines around the world.
Her primary technique is warm glass sculpturing and she also produces interdisciplinary work with digital media; projecting giclée fine art prints on the wall.
Exploring and learning have always been a major inspiration for Anne. A fascination with science of all kinds informs her work, which employs the following main themes: cultural heritage and the depiction of life on our planet. Central motifs are faces and eyes to invite the viewer to meet the soul behind the subject.
