Catherine Knight is a painter based at BV Studio Bristol and a RWA Artist Network member. Since graduating from an MA in Fine Art at Bath Spa University in 2008 with a distinction, she has exhibited widely in both private and public gallery spaces including Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the Royal West of England Academy. Most notably she was an invited artist at the Discerning Eye exhibition in 2014 and was shortlisted for the John Gingell prize in 2012.
Her work is distinctive for its vibrant use of colour and evocative landscapes based on Iceland and Finland. In 2018 Catherine was one of five artists who took part in the Bristol/ Hannover Artist Exchange, which linked up artists in the two cities and resulted in group exhibitions in both.
Catherine has been teaching for 12 years with a special interest in oil painting and expressive use of colour. She enjoys working with a wide variety of people and ability levels and is passionate about the positive effects of art making and wellbeing.
