Nurtured by Nature: Developing as an Artist in Chautauqua County
Audrey Kay Dowling was raised on 52 acres on Bemus Creek. During these years, she spent her free time exploring the woods and creeks that ran through the property. Her love of nature was nurtured by these explorations of the family woods, frequent visits to Audubon, and hiking by the local creeks, streams, lakes and woods. After leaving the area to pursue a degree in art at SUNY New Paltz, she returned to the beauty of Chautauqua County and has spent her life since then studying and using her art ability to interpret regional plants, birds and landscapes using mixed media, clay and paint.
