About The Artist

I originally trained as a potter. Having spent a year working with Robin Welch, and following my foundation course at what is now Oxford Brookes , I trained for two years on the Harrow School of Art Studio Pottery course in the early seventies. I worked for many years producing stoneware, then black and white porcelain ware.

A textiles course with the Open College of the Arts took me back to my drawing and painting roots, my father Dennis Knowland had been a painter and taught me a great deal from an early age.

Teaching at an Oxford school incorporated all these skills, but now I concentrate on drawing, painting, a little printing and ceramics
