Visual West Art by Roberta McGowan is based upon the pledge to honor the western spirit by preserving moments of natural splendor.
"The mages which I create are dynamic and thought provoking;portraying fluid, real life experiences. Strong, true colors reflect the tough and gritty lives of the horses, cowgirls and cowgirls depicted.
I make my images from the perspective of the subjects, yet the viewer is an integral part of the artistic process. The viewer sees what the subjects are feeling,and the subjects appear if they are responding to the viewer's reactions.
With a photojournalist approach, my style is powerful yet subtle. I work to savor magical human and equine connections."
From her earliest years with a point and shoot camera to professional newspaper photographer to corporate photojournalist to creative artist, Roberta has carried with her the joy of interpreting those special moments.
Roberta entered the world of Western photography with interpretive images which find that energy which survives and thrives in the Rocky Mountains.
