Mentally challenged brother is inspiration for the newest pieces. Unlike her previous work, this series focuses less on the physical likeness, and more on the emotive portrait. Bachorski-Bowman’s newest series called “Portraits of a Soul” was inspired by her brother.  “He is special; mentally challenged,” said   Bachorski-Bowman’s “He is a remarkable individual, who has greatly impacted my life.  He is unable to converse, yet is full of emotions he is unable to express verbally.  He is an adult by years; an innocent, a child, by experience.  The new work is inspired by the raw emotions I’ve seen in him.”
