Owen is a contemporary artist and illustrator from Providence, Rhode Island. After many years of creating oil paintings based on popular culture and Americana, he recently began making pen-and-ink drawings of boats and ships, with a particular interest in the rigging of these vessels. Wooden boats, both large and small, now populate his drawings as well as his imagination. Owen has shown his work in New York, Los Angeles, and Providence and his paintings are in several public and private collections, including the Rhode Island School of Design Museum and Fidelity Investments’ corporate collection.
Eighty-five individuals from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds sailed aboard the ship and participated in an unprecedented public-history project, using their own perspectives and talents to document their experiences. Meet the Voyagers »
