John E. Dowell Jr. was born in Philadelphia. He studied ceramics and printmaking at the Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, and lithography with Garo Antreasian at the John Herron Art Institute, Indianapolis. In 1963 he worked at the prestigious Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles. Dreams and fantasies are often the inspiration for Dowell's prints. Some of his works also reflect his interest in dance and modern music.

Prints by Dowell are included in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, The Art Institute of Chicago, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
