Emily Bowers is new to PAOS 2022, her art has been getting noticed in regional exhibitions over the last few years, from The Willoughby Open to the Stamford Arts Centre, it is evident she has a compositional sense that and makes for eye-capturing content. Emily is hoping to exhibit at the Hackspace in Peterborough this years Open Studios, so watch this space. Her enigmatic underwater images have been a delightful addition to group shows and we look forward to seeing what she will reveal for visitors to the PAOS weekends!
Emily says, ‘I am deeply inspired by nature as well as natural history and extremely concerned about the state of our planet and life with on it. I want to create the positive changes I’d like to see; people protect what they love and care about. My goal is to create awareness and conversation whilst engaging people in the arts. My hope is to create stories for both children and adults that they feel connected to; stories that inspire them and that can be a starting point of a conversation.’
