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 New Art Gallery, Walsall. She was an invited artist at the Discerning Eye exhibition in 2014 and has exhibited three times at the Royal Watercolour Society Open, winning the Insight Art Prize in 2022.
Her work is distinctive for its vibrant use of colour and evocative landscapes based on Iceland, Finland and Norway. 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. She recently made a pilgrimage to the summer house of Edvard Munch in Åsgårdstrand, Norway, and the resulting body of work was exhibited in solo shows at Petersfield Museum and Art gallery and Irving Contemporary, Oxford.
Catherine has been teaching for over 15 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.
