  Feature Artist Bio

By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by American painter 

Annette D. McGowan (born 1959 in Palo Alto, California).

Annette has lived near the ocean her entire life. McGowan’s paintings are often inspired by the beauty of nature. Annette is an imaginative self-taught artist, who is driven by an incredible passion for self-expression through art.

Annette’s style is noted for it’s originality, vibrant colors and mood. “With my painting I try to engage the viewer, interrupt their thought process,and bring them to another place.” She is best known for her seascapes, romantic sculptures and humorous wine series.

In the early 90s, McGowan began displaying her artwork in galleries.

                     ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I love painting seascapes and sunsets. When I die I hope God will let me paint sunsets. This life and what I paint here, is only my audition.
