Knowles was born in Freeport, Bahamas, in 1986. She exhibited talent at an early age and was encouraged to develop her natural abilities. She excelled and claimed many art awards during her primary and secondary education. She went on to major in the fine arts at the College of the Bahamas.

After 28 years in the Bahamas, Knowles had an opportunity to move to Maine, and has spent the past eight years enjoying the changing of the seasons and finding inspiration to further her passion in the art field.

Seikman is a Kingfield-raised nature photographer. His work has been shaped by the Carrabassett River, wilderness, walking trails and other natural surroundings. He also draws inspiration from Jay Maisel’s use of composition and contrast.
