Sophie Knight

ELECTED ARWS 1990 & RWS 1995


At the age of 24 Sophie graduated from the Royal Academy of Art , won 'The Hunting Group Young person award' and became an associate member or the Royal Watercolour Society.
Sophie lives in London and has a studio in New Cross, but much or her work is done outside working directly from the landscape or cityscape. Her watercolours are worked in an energetic and vigorous manner, squeezing paint straight onto the paper, scratching in marks and drawing directly with a brush, she aims to retain the freshness and vitality of her visual excitement and record the physical experience of working within the landscape.
Sophie's work has been shown in London Galleries and she recently had a solo show was with the Bircham Gallery in Holt, Norfolk depicting the wild grasses and marsh land of the area.
She is in numerous private collections including The House of Lords, The New Parliamentary Building, London, TSB Bank, Freshfield Solicitors and Pilkingtons International.  Sophie also runs several ongoing workshops and daytime watercolour classes from her studio in New Cross.
