Peter Bowen watercolour artist and ceramics designer enjoys drawing and painting quirky scenes of buildings with washing lines and works primarily in pen and ink and watercolour. Peter Bowen’s artistic work has been exhibited throughout North America and the United Kingdom.
“As long as I can remember I have always enjoyed drawing and painting and was encouraged by my father to draw and learn about watercolour”. “My father was very good at painting in oils and acrylics but encouraged me to master watercolour for its unforgiving nature that could be tamed with practice,” says Peter Bowen.
Peter Bowen studied graphic design at the former West of England College of Art in Bristol and graduated with a diploma that was converted to a Bachelor of Arts Degree.
Ceramics have always played an important part in Peters' artistic development during the past 40 years and his exploration of slab built structures using both earthenware and stoneware clay bodies leads him to experiment with different surface glazes to elevate the decorated art forms.
Art and Ceramics compliment each other in every way and provide creative opportunities to explore new boundaries.
