Hey everyone…I’m Lora McGowan. I’m new to Fineartamerica this year, but I’ve been creating art most of my life. My mother and grandmother were both painters (well …my granddad was to… if you count painting houses). I learned to love art through them. I studied Fine Arts at Southern Illinois University but the learning for me has never really stopped. I live in the South …in Alabama specifically,and I love it’s charm and it’s people.You’ll see it show up in my art from time to time. I share in it’s heritage ….deep roots in family, home, and God. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoyed creating it.
