Ginger Bowen

Ginger felt as a child the hunger to record what she saw and knew at a very early age, the brush and the canvas would be her means. Although it was in her late twenties before she was able to obtain a formal art education, she followed her heroes until the time she was able to study under them in a formal setting. She searched out her favorites, including Daniel Greene, Matt Smith, Kevin MacPherson and Ted Nuttall.

Ms. Bowen’s work has been featured in galleries and shows from Maui, Hawaii to New York, including the International Guild of Realism’s 5th Annual Exhibition in 2010 and California Art Club’s Gold Medal Exhibition in 2009. Ginger has paintings featured in three art books; “Plein Air New Mexico”, “How Did You Paint That? One Hundred Ways to Paint Landscapes, Volume 1” and “How Did You Paint That? One Hundred Ways to Paint Still Lifes and Florals” as well as feature articles in International Artist and Southwest Art.

She divides her time between painting watercolors and still lifes in her studio and traveling the world painting the landscape in plein air. For her still lifes she finds antique objects and paints them hoping to give viewers a second look, and bring about a feeling of nostalgia. She often uses a play-on-words in her titles that can impart an entirely different meaning in the painting. She paints them only from life, and life size. Her landscapes are looser, done more quickly and show her love of the land. “I feel I have the best of both worlds. Not only am I able to paint what I see in a studio still life, but I’m able to capture what I see out in the world through my landscapes. I feel so blessed to be able to do something I love so much”.
