Work With Me
My approach is adaptable and tailored to achieving your hoped outcomes.

I’m open to a conversation about your ideal brief and any parameters you’re working within.

I’ll then propose HOW this is achieved.


I hope you’ll be equally open to my alternative ways of working: 

These will always meet your participants’ needs and wants over strict fixed outcomes

The most playful and imaginative work comes from my out-of-the box, unconstrained and spontaneous thinking.

If you’re open to this, let’s have a conversation


"We commissioned Beatrice Lee Knowles to create an installation for Leeds Baby Week, we knew that Bea's knowledge of early years provision would be an asset and that she wouldn't be daunted by the scale of The Tetley's atrium. But the final artwork and the response from babies and carers was bigger and better than we could have imagined. o̶n̶'̶t  Play With Your Food was an epic, colourful, funny installation that invited babies in to play, interact and become part of the artwork, activating it and enjoying themselves at the same time.

Throughout this, and other projects, Bea has been fantastic to work with, bringing a great knowledge of engagement with children and brimming with creative great ideas and skills. If you want to do something fun with art and children you should work with Bea!"  Bryony Bond, Director, The Tetley

"Beatrice worked with our pupils at our school on a School Values project, working with pupils from Y1 to Y6. From the planning process to displaying our sculpture, we were impressed by Beatrice’s organisation, adaptability, teaching and resourcing. Her communication was clear and timely, she left us with a photographic project book which explained the project and is proudly displayed with our art work."  Headteacher, Pipworth Community Primary School

"As a family that includes an outrageous, angry and active two year old, an older child with additional needs and an ex creative, finding activities that we all enjoy is near impossible. Over the summer holidays we decided to give one of Bea’s workshops a go and were so excited to discover an accessible, welcoming and cater to all space. We spent hours building dens, bashing flowers and getting our collage on with our walls at home now adorned with the master pieces of a 2, 6 and 32 year old. Bea is warm, inviting and inspiring. We loved getting to spend a summer with her."  Parent, York Art Gallery Creative Thursdays

"It was so incredible to experience Beatrice Lee Knowles' ̶D̶o̶n̶'̶t  Play With Your Food with my 16 month year old.
Art and play are essential to be intertwined and Bea does is amazingly.
Each part of the installation was thoroughly thought out but it also was welcoming so that my son could go off-piste with his own version of play." 
Parent, D̶o̶n̶'̶t  Play With Your Food
