BIOGRAPHY:


Nicholas R. Brownlee, a Philadelphia native, was born in 1990.  He has participated in multiple group shows in Center City since the age of 13, and before and during his jewelry studies at the University of the Arts, he has featured designs in sterling, gold, and precious stones.  Since 2011, he has designed and produced by hand several small-scale semi-precious and precious sculptures shortly after beginning at PAFA, thus applying his jeweler’s background to the field of sculpture.  He has recently turned his attention to various forms of digital 2-D graphic design, as well as 3-D modeling and animation, which have become real, though unexpected, passions.  Having lost the use of his left arm, Niko is now exploring and transposing his skills as a jeweler and sculptor at PAFA by embracing the exciting realm of digital art.
