Intrigued with the art of photography, Kathy Bower purchased a Canon DSLR ten years ago and her hobby quickly became a passion. She delights in seeing ordinary things in a unique way. Her work has been featured in several juried shows, including Summerview/Winterview 2011-2013, 2016-2018 and Clifton Cultural Arts Center 2010-2012 in Cincinnati. Her photography has been published in local newspapers, pamphlets, and magazines. Kathy received honorable mention in the Forgotten Spaces exhibit and third place in the recent RED exhibit.
Kathy has been a summer resident of Alpena, Michigan since 1999. After retiring from Cincinnati Public Schools in June 2017, she took the plunge and became a full time Alpena resident. Kathy plans to devote more time to photography and travel. She is the mother of three adult children and the grandmother of seven.
