Edith Owens

Edith has spent most of her life creating.  Art and creating is where she feels most content and connected with the world around her. 

 

When she was in elementary school, Edith's mother started a company called Artisan's Network in downtown Mansfield, Texas.  Through her mom's shop, Edith met many craftsman and artisans from all different backgrounds.  Edith's mother would nudge her to create whether it was drawing Christmas holly and berries on coffee bags, creating large signs for one of the Mansfield parades, or building sculptures out of found materials with her brother in the backroom.  Edith's parents have always encouraged her and her siblings to create. 

Edith's dream when leaving high school was to get a Master's degree in Art Therapy but life would take her in many other directions along the way.  Edith completed her BFA at UTA.  It was a great achievement because she took the long path to a college degree.  Over the years, Edith has had many different jobs but her favorites are being a mom to her two creative daughters, a wedding/portrait photographer, an art educator at the high school level, and an Executive Assistant/Marketing/Web & Design/Jack of all trades for a local non-profit - Downtown Business Improvement District. 

Edith's dreams include being an artist full-time, creating a cooperative art studio space with shared tools, teaching art techniques to engaged learners, creating an artist community of like-minded individuals wanting to make a difference in their communities, and finally she'd love to live in Ouray, CO at some point in her life.
