“People will always need art in their lives.”: Alexandra Bowman, Catapult Artist for August

“Working for myself is all about balance. Although illustration is my career and passion, I still need to have a life outside of art-making.”

I was thrilled when Alexandra said yes to being our featured Catapult Artist for August. Her work is bold and bright with clean lines that almost resemble modern-day stained glass. There is this gorgeous texture and translucency and all of these details show up beautifully on small and large screens alike, which is key for a digital magazine. It was an incredible treat to show sneak peeks of her work to our team and listen to the audible recognition and to hear her enthusiasm come through each email as we worked through the month.
