Carolyn Bowlus – Los Osos, CA

I grew up in a family of amateur artists so it seemed natural to try my hand in the art world. I dabbled in acrylics and watercolors with a few art classes along the way.

When I was diagnosed with MS in 2000, I had visual and migraine issues which now come and go. When I am in remission I go back to my art hobbies with great enthusiasm. It is something I have to look forward to during the “down” times.

My recent artwork subject matter was inspired by travels to the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
