A Santa Ynez Valley artist and member of the Founding Class of Harvey Mudd College, Joseph Knowles ’61 was born in Santa Barbara, the son of two artists. In the 1980s, Knowles left architecture to concentrate on art and graphic design. Most of Knowles work has been on paper, in pastel, oil, watercolor and ink. His subject matter varies from the highly abstract to the extremely representational. As an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation, he has focused in recent years on work which also relates to his Indian heritage, including the extensive "Bison Series" of iconic buffalo images.
