​​                       Brushstrokes by Anne


Anne Bowman is a late comer to the world of oil painting. She is a retired educator with a BS, MS and teaching credential from UCLA. Anne always knew she wanted to paint but life got in the way, so she started her career in the arts when she retired. Anne gets her inspiration from nature and the people she has met in her lifetime. While she has done very life-like portraits, she draws inspiration from exaggerating the characteristics of people. Anne has to feel what she paints and wants her viewers to relate to them as well.  She paints with passion and a lot of soul.
