ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I am an impressionist painter in acrylics, oil, and pastel who particularly enjoys the beauty and spiritual connection I feel while interpreting the natural landscape, human figure, animal life, and plant life while using a brush, palette knife, or pastel.

For me art is a sentimental journey…a recording of feelings and an opportunity to show reverence for the beauty and variety of the natural world. I hope to connect with people who share my love of landscape and living things. Through the language of art I can express the joy I feel when creating a magical world of unlimited possibilities for combining colors, shapes, lines, and textures.

Although I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I grew up in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California. After receiving a BA at CSUN in 1972, I moved to the San Francisco Peninsula to work as a Graphic Designer for an ad agency, followed by positions in marketing for high-tech companies. For the last several years I have been able to devote more time to my passion for art making, foreign travel, and enjoying memberships in two plein-air painting groups. As a docent for the San Jose Museum of Art’s “Let’s Look at Art” program I bring a very interactive 50-minute art presentation covering the elements of art, and art history into local elementary school classrooms.

I have won recognition in local art shows and online competitions. Please visit my website  carolbower.com  for details, or  Gallery 9 Los Altos
