Kāpiti Arts Guide: Listing 66
Artistic medium: Painting, printmaking
Arresting abstracts, expressionistic, and part-realism are all part of Owie’s wide range of styles of oil painting and prints. Inspired by many diverse impressions and experiences from her travels, especially of different cultures, Owie has created several themed series, including three relating to ethnic fertility beliefs.
Owie originally trained at the Inverlochy Art School 17 years ago, and has continued to develop her art practice in England, USA, and New Zealand. She has exhibited in Wellington, Kāpiti and Auckland, and works from her studio gallery at her home in Waikanae Beach.
Owie intersperses working on her painting series with carving woodblocks and drawing for silkscreen printmaking.
