About Peter Bowen

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.

My Work

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.

Creating artistic interpretations

Using different tools for painting and three-dimensional art provides an interesting mix of skills to create images that are in thoughts and ideas into visual creative interpretations of life that can be shared with others.

This is a difficult thing to try and explain but it is what I do to express myself artistically in a way that communicates my feelings. I sometimes restrict myself to very controlled tight conditions to create three-dimensional structures in wood almost architectural in nature but resulting in a finished structure that is functional.

Every time I start out to create a dimensional form it is an experiment in trying to form the material into what I have a visual idea for, and sometimes the result is pleasing and not what I had intended but it looks good and I am proud to display it for all to admire.
