XX century California. Born in Hollywood 1927. Lives in Big Sur, California. biographical sketch by former Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts Director, E. Gunter Troche, for the International Graphic Arts Society: "Dorothy Bowman was born in Hollywood. She studied in Los Angeles at the Chouinard Institute with Jean Charlot, and at the Jepson Institute with Rico Lebrun. A sequence of awards and public purchases, including a previous IGAS publication, have marked her rising reputation. She lives now at Big Sur on California's most enchanted coast. "Dorothy Bowman specializes in serigraphs with a Californian flavor. She has been able to give to this technique an intricacy of design and a luminescence of color seldom reached by others. The recent cityscapes of Dorothy Bowman are aglow with excitement in their moody yet stimulating contrasts." see more info in artist file.
