Dorothy Bunny Bowen has lived in the arid high desert of New Mexico since 1967. She started as a painter and art historian and was a textile research associate at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe for 10 years. Since 1980 she has worked in the ancient medium of wax resist on silk and cotton, often choosing as her subject matter metaphysical themes relating to the blessing (and scarcity) of water in the desert. She continues to explore the wonder of high country rushing streams, quiet eddies with floating leaves and the teasing dance of summer virga.
