Educated in Skipton, pattern designer Sheila Bownas showed artistic promise from an early age. In 1941 she secured a junior art scholarship to attend Skipton Art College and later gained a county art scholarship to attend the Slade School in London and several of Sheila’s paintings were exhibited at The Royal Academy of Arts. In the early 1950s, her interest was drawn to textile design and Sheila’s natural flair for pattern led to a successful freelance career, supplying bold and colourful designs to the likes of Liberty and Marks and Spencer throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s. She moved between London and Linton for twelve years, before finally settling in the Dales until her death ten years ago.
