Deborah Bowen’s current oil paintings convey a gentle sense of place. Her intent is to paint that one special moment when a scene is filled with light and glowing. The distinctive brushwork in these paintings creates a beautiful surface of color, texture and movement. Deborah uses an impressionistic and abstract style, keeping shapes and detail uncomplicated.
“So much time in my life is spent being super structured and busy. Painting has helped me to slow down and pay attention to the little things that can bring me real peace and give perspective to the world’s craziness.”
Deborah has studied art at Grand Valley State University, Ox Bow/Art Institute of Chicago, Scottsdale Artistsʼ School, and plein air painted in San Miguel, Mexico. Her paintings are part of many private and university collections. She has participated in numerous art shows including the Regional at the Muskegon Museum of Art and has been the recipient of many awards.
Deborah lives in Spring Lake, Michigan with her husband Dan. They have two adult children, a huge family and circle of friends, and live an active life filled with many blessings.
