Carolyn Gowdy

Carolyn Gowdy is an American artist and illustrator, born in Seattle in 1956 and based in London since 1977. Gowdy studied at the University of Washington (1972-74); Rhode Island School of Design (1974-76); and the Royal College of Art, London (1977-80).

Gowdy has long been fascinated by the relationship between words and images, and her early works at the RCA were initially inspired by the writings of Simone de Beauvoir. England & Co held a solo exhibition/installation of her work in 2006 and have featured her feminist collage series, The Theatre of Women (1979-80). Gowdy's photographs from the 1970s were included in the gallery's presentation at Photo London in 2017.
