Joe Francis Dowden

Joe Francis Dowden painted his first

landscape in watercolour at the age of

six, with tuition from his father, himself

a painter. He trained at Epsom School

of Art and Design and Teesside

Polytechnic. Early contact with some

fantastic painters was a major

contributor to his development as an

artist. He was brought up in the rural

backwoods of Southern England

where he now lives and works. He

travels whenever he can to gather

source material for his paintings,

sketching on site rapidly and

prolifically. Joe is an accomplished

watercolour painter with an

international reputation.

His work has sold in many galleries and

is sought by collectors worldwide. He

constantly writes books, presents TV

programmes and writes regularly for

art magazines including the SAA. In the

past he demonstrated for several

manufacturers and is well known for

his advice on good art materials.
