Barb Bowman, " Abstract Expressionist"

"Personal expression is full of complexities. It's our bright side, our dark side, and the connection between them, And, it's how we relate to our surroundings. Ultimately, it's about simplifying the complexities to find the perfect balance of who we really are"

Barb is an accomplished artist. She creates marvelous abstract impressionist works featuring unbelievable energy, color, and spontaneity. She is currently represented by the Kevin Harris Gallery in Cave Creek. HER SITE
