Mary Gwyn Bowen

Nashville Tennessee

I am an artist, art instructor, and registered nurse working on making those three blend. My painting is most often about Reelfoot Lake, a magical lake formed by the New Madrid Earthquake of 1811-1812. Botanical painting and drawing is a second love and reminds me of happy times in my grandmother's garden. As a registered nurse, I teach a workshop on art's role in healthcare. Every now and again, I teach botanical watercolor. My art can be found at Part Two of the Art to Heart Project is at:
