Nellie Mae Rowe transformed her home in Vinings, Georgia into an ever-changing art work that she dubbed her “playhouse.”
The legendary wrestler, “Thunderbolt” Patterson is a recurring subject in Nellie Mae Rowe’s work.
“I leave my hand, just like you leave your hand on the wall. When I’m gone they can see a print of my hand. I love that — to see a print of my hand. I’ll be gone to rest, but they can look back and say ’that is Nellie Mae’s hand.’”
