Roger Lowe

John Roger Lowe was born in December 1944. He joined the staff of the Ipswich School of Art, then in High Street, Ipswich and in 1984, succeeded Derek Benney, as principal of the school, then in the Rope Walk, Ipswich. This was an unusual appointment for an already serving applicant to be offered a headship, but Lowe had spearheaded the School of Art's return to art education at a higher level. He had Andrew Dodds, as his unofficial deputy, and together launched several new courses at many levels from a one-year entry level course at High Street, a one-year foundation course leading to the two-year pre-degree course. Roger retired from the School in January 2000 when he was able to pursue his keen interest in sailing and developed his artistic approach as a figurative stone carver. In 2015 he was living at 58 High Street, Ipswich.
