Western and wildlife artist Amanda Cowan has been expressing herself through art since she can remember. When she was a young girl, she spent most of her time outdoors drawing the horses, cows and any wildlife that she came across. Self-taught, she paints in watercolors and oils. Some of the shows she has participated in are Cowgirl Up!, Wickenburg, Arizona, The Out West Art Show, Great Falls, Montana, the America’s Horse in Art Show in Amarillo, Texas where she won the Steeldust Award in 2018. Also, the Cowboy Classics in Phoenix, Arizona, The Phippen Art Show, in Prescott, Arizona, the San Dimas Western Art Show, in San Dimas, California, and the Western Art Roundup, in Winnemucca, Nevada, where she won the People’s Choice Award in 2007. Her art is in private collections in Korea, Australia, Canada, France and the US. She lives with her husband on a ranch in southwest Wyoming, where she rides horses behind cattle all year long, they feed with a team in the winter, and she never runs out of amazing inspiration.
