Allison Bowman is an oil and acrylic painter who focuses on abstracted botanical environments. As a Kansas native Bowman grew up surrounded by the Flint Hills. From when she was a child, she remembers walks through the Konza Prairie discovering different species of plants. The natural forms made by native prairie life are what initially inspired her abstract compositions.
After graduating from Kansas State University in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in fine art she moved with her husband to Olathe, KS. Bowman currently works as the Administrative Assistant for the Arts Council of Johnson County and teaches art classes at the Johnson County Arts and Heritage Center in Overland Park, Kansas. Before working in administration and becoming a teacher, Bowman worked in private art galleries as an assistant curator and preparator.
Bowman was accepted into the Artist INC Advance program through the Mid-America Arts Alliance in 2020 and is currently working on a project titled Sacred Spaces: Cultivating Hope that focuses on raising awareness for mental health and advocacy through the arts and nature.
