The son of a chaplain and a school teacher, Kent Knowles grew up traveling around the world. Having lived in Okinawa, Germany and throughout the United States, his love for words and imagery have been nurtured by the rich experiences of his nomadic childhood.
Kent enjoys writing for both children and young adults, with a particular interest in exploring the imagination and the unknown.
In addition to writing, Kent is also an exhibiting artist and a teacher. For the last 15 years he has worked as a professor of Painting and Foundation Studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
When he isn’t teaching, you can find Kent writing children’s books, attacking large-scale figurative paintings and conjuring screenplays (horror).
He lives on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife and two children.
VP are very excited to publishing Kent's story, 'THE REALM OF SMALLER THINGS', one of the most stunningly beautiful illustrated books you will have ever seen, in 2022.
