Artist Bio

Fabienne (Fab) Sowa – Dobkowski is a California-based, self-taught photographer with a Ph.D. in Art History. Her work showcases the ambivalent relationship between humankind and nature through an intersection of fine art and documentary photography.

Born and raised in Belgium, Fab has lived in Spain, France, England, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Colorado, and Texas. She moved to the Bay Area in 2000 and pursued her doctorate degree in Art History at l’Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) remotely while raising her children. During her time at ULB, she worked under the direction of the renowned art historian and director of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium Dr. Michel Draguet. She now has an academic career as an art historian with Southern New Hampshire University and resides in the Sierra Nevada Foothills with her husband and their fur babies where she nurtures her artistic endeavors.

Combining the skills and knowledge gained through her academic pursuits and the trials and tribulations of motherhood, Fab found her passion in photography. With sensibilities deeply rooted in the traditions of the fine arts, her photography reverses the anthropocentric perspective of the art genres to portray the transient and illustrate the interconnectivity of humanity and nature.

Her work has won multiple awards and has been exposed in juried exhibitions and group art shows since 2020. Her photographs are currently in private collections in Europe and the United States.
