Devon Nowlin is a Fort Worth native who holds a BFA from the University of North Texas (2004) and an MFA from Texas Christian University (2011). Primarily known for her figurative paintings, Nowlin is currently creating a body of work informed by mid-twentieth century American history, vernacular photography, and nostalgia. She also creates artwork in a wide range of media including textiles, small sculpture, and photography that are meant to enhance connections and encourage fresh perspectives in our experiences with her paintings.
