Birmingham born and based artist, Kate Penelope Knowles:

I am a sociable person, comfortable working alone or collaboratively. In both situations, I am motivated and hardworking. My organisational skills are good, this being a necessary quality gained from running my own business and raising my four children.

My art practice is very broad, allowing me to produce work across many disciplines: painting,  drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, video and printmaking.
