Deborah Bowe, the complex frailty of the human soul


Creating art is my recollection of fragments of emotions, moods and feelings that are transferred and visualized onto canvas. I portray the beauty and the complex frailty of the human soul in my paintings.

My paintings are often inspired by women of divine origins, courageous heroines, literature, poetry, nature, music and everything that surrounds me.

Ultimately, Art is for me a spontaneous and well defined form of expression that allows me to communicate visions of my world that I wish to share and every painting session is a new challenge and the most exciting journey.

I wish to spark and to convey emotions through my art and I hope that my artwork will also transmit feelings of kindness, hope and beauty to the audience, across the space and time to escape the ugliness of the world.
