Kelly Gowan

Kel­ly Gowan was born in CA in 1973, but grew up in Texas since she was 3. Her Dad, Grand­moth­er, and sis­ter were all amaz­ing artists. In col­lege Kel­ly dab­bled with paint­ing, then met her hus­band in 1995. She has been hap­pi­ly mar­ried for over 20 years and has two chil­dren. In 2005 Kel­ly was diag­nosed with stage III Breast can­cer and is here today. This is a huge rea­son of why she moved out to the coun­try, lives on a lake, paints EVERY DAY, and has such a zest for life. Kel­ly and her fam­i­ly now live in East Texas at Hol­ly Lake Ranch. Her house over­looks a small lake where dai­ly they are sur­round­ed by wildlife such as deer, bald eagles, and so much more. Paint­ing is her full time career now, and she is suc­cess­ful­ly sell­ing her art in the US as well as France and Den­mark. She is a Chris­t­ian and thanks God every day for the bless­ing of being able to paint.

In her 600+ sq ft stu­dio in Hol­ly Lake, she cre­ates paint­ings with blow torch­es, her hands and more.
