Michéle Nigrini was born in Pretoria where she studied and obtained her M.A. degree in Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria. In 1994 she had a fortunate event that changed her artistic career forever when the Rembrandt van Rijn Art Foundation bought all the works from her M.A. solo exhibition (practical examination), which included a 16meter panel titled “Color Symphony”. Nigrini mainly works in oil and believes in the everyday life that inspires her to create beautiful sceneries of landscapes, interiors and nature. Nigiri lives and works in Rosendal.
