Rowena has lived and worked in Scotland as a professional artist for 30 years. Currently her studio is the Gallowgate, in the east end of Glasgow. She was born in Southend-on-Sea, Essex and in 1982 completed my BA(Hons) in Fine Art at Reading University where she embraced expressionist colourfield painting with confidence and passion.
She continues to develop this dramatic and emotive painting style, making these works from a specific aesthetic point that personally expresses sublime elements of human experiences. Over many years she has refined and developed her technique, a process that continues to challenge and intrigue.
She has received awards from Creative Scotland, the Hope Scott Trust and Paisley Art Institute, among others.
She is a Professional elected member of the Society of Scottish Artists and Paisley Art Institute.
She served as President of the Scottish Artists Union from 2011-2014.
Rowena’s work is held in many public and private collections including Aberdeen Art Gallery & Museum and the New Hall Art Collection, Cambridge.
