LeAnne Sowa, Cedar Springs Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement LeAnne (Mawby) Sowa is a Western Michigan Watercolor fine artist.
From the shorelines of the Great Lakes to the interior
of its farmlands, Michigan marvels with great scenery
and history. The collection of fine art watercolors
by Artist LeAnne Sowa depicts some of what Michigan has to offer. Her unique watercolor style with colorful washes and bold detail show off the beauty to be admired.
LeAnne’s natural talent has been enhanced through her career by attending various professional workshops and college classes. And one opportunity allowed her some study in England while residing there with her family. Earlier in life, she pursued a degree in Mechanical Drafting and worked at Blackmer pump and Steelcase in Grand Rapids, Michigan as a mechanical and layout drafter designer. After several years of drafting, she knew that she wanted to go back to her creative roots and become a fine artist.
She is a member of the Michigan Watercolor Society, and the Rogue River Artist Association of Rockford.
Currently her works can be viewed at “Our Gallery” of Pentwater (inside Marilyn’s Style), the “Frame and Mat Shop” of Rockford, the “Little Yellow Frame and Mat Shop, Richland, and the “Eclectic Gallery” Ionia, Michigan.
LeAnne Sowa is married, with two daughters, one dog and two cats. She lives just outside of Cedar Springs where she works from her home studio on Crawford Lake.
