April Bower has always been fascinated by all the varied processes involved in metalworking. After receiving a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree, she spent 18+ years doing bench work in fine jewelry stores in Arizona. Her focus has spanned from fine jewelry to copper fountain sculptures. Using those same chemicals used to color the fountain parts, she developed “Patina Painting” on thin copper sheets, originally salvaged from industry leftovers, supported by wood backings.
As Artists like to work in many mediums Bower also creates with watercolor and chalk pastel and teaches at Art Retreats and Studios throughout the US.
Represented in several galleries including Fountain Hills Artists Gallery, in Fountain Hills, AZ, The Earthen Vessel in Durango CO, The Sedona Arts Center, in Sedona, AZ. and Gallery 873 in Kayenta, UT.
