About

Vanessa Bowen (Diné) is a Native American multi-faceted artist, with skills ranging from pushing paint to pixel manipulation.

Bowen was born in 1985 in Naʼnízhoozhí (Gallup, New Mexico) located on the edge of Dinétah (The Navajo Nation). Since childhood, art was a major factor in her life which set the foundation that she would later utilize as a springboard to become a freelance designer and artist.

She studied English and Graphic Design at Fort Lewis College. Since then she fully immersed herself in art and design, which blossomed into a successful freelance career.

In 2016, she became well-known for producing "Make America Native Again" hats as a way of starting conversation about the problematic history behind Donald Trump's presidential campaign slogan -- "Make America Great Again" -- and to raise awareness for marginalized indigenous peoples in the U.S.

Bowen continues to work out of her studio located in Albuquerque, NM for her design firm Bowen Creative. She derives her support and encouragement from her husband and inspiration and motivation from her two small children.

As side hobbies, Bowen plays house and techno at local DJ gigs in the city and is currently falling in love with modular synthesizers.

Get Vanessa an art show!

I aim to have an art show within the next 6 month with my recent works. Supporters will have their name on display during the exhibition.
