Her father is Leonard Lowry, a descendant of the Maidu and Pit River tribes. Her mother, June Shirley Harrison, is Australian. Her parents met during World War II when her father was stationed in her mother's native Sydney, Australia.
Lowry has a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Humboldt State University, and Masters of Fine Arts in painting and drawing from Chico State University. Lowry's work is influenced by Frank Day, Harry Fonseca, Fra Angelico, Giotto, and Sandro Botticelli. Her works frequently reference themes including consumerism, fashion, relationships, death, and the representation of Native American people in contemporary culture. Lowry frequently works in oil and acrylics creating "larger-than-life" images that favour "allegorical sensibilit[ies]."
Lowry's studio is in Nevada City. Her work has been exhibited at the Crocker Art Museum, the Wheelwright Museum, the Carl M. Gorman Museum, the Heard Museum, and the George Gustav Heye Center. In 2012, she showed at the Pence Gallery. Her work is in the collections of the National Museum of the American Indian and Peabody Essex Museum.
