Lynne’ Bowman Cravens was born and raised in Austin, Texas. She attended St. Edward’s University, and received her BA in Photocommunications in 2009. Cravens later attended graduate school at the University of North Texas where she received her MFA in Photography in 2015.
Cravens is a fine art photographer working in an interdisciplinary method. She takes a wide range of approaches in her artwork as a response to her autobiographical narrative. The work is poetic and expressive, revealing a glimpse into her desires through contemporary self-portraiture. Cravens works primarily with photography, making unique pieces from an infinitely reproducible medium. Through meticulous physical distortions and transdisciplinary techniques she creates photographic pieces that address her personal experiences, identity, and physical form. Each piece and series ranges from large-scale digital installations to delicate one of a kind objects.
Cravens currently resides in the DFW area, working as the Gallery Manager at The Art Galleries at TCU. Cravens is in her second season as a member of the artist run co-op, 500X Gallery in Dallas, Texas. Her work was also featured in the June 2016 issue of the British Origami Society’s international publication, and in the 4th annual Rising Stars exhibition at Turner House. Cravens recently had a solo exhibition of her work in Fort Worth at the Moncrief Cancer Institute.
