Roberta McGowan's Bio
From her earliest years with a point and shoot camera to newspaper photographer to corporate photojournalist to western photographer, Roberta has carried with her the joy of capturing those whisper of time images.
She is a horsewoman as well as a documentary artist who combines both passions to create Visual West Art with her dynamic style.
Roberta has been honored by the Calgary Stampede Photo Competition, the Black and White Spider Photo Competition, the New Jersey Press Association, the New York Institute of Photography, and was named Photographer of the Year by the Philadelphia Chapter of Women in Communications.
"It's not about the technology; it's about the fragile whispers we see and feel. Those images that are here and then gone in an instant; The eye that sees them; The visions of the artist; The stories to be told; This is Fine Art.
The images I create are dynamic and thought provoking. Strong colors and tones reflect the tough and gritty lives of the horses, cowboys, cowgirls and the West where they live and work. My art is created from the perspective of the subject."
