Frances Knight is a contemporary landscape artist who paints ‘en plein air’, exploring light and colour effects on the landscape. These expressive studies inform later studio paintings, which often push gently towards abstraction. Interested in the interplay between abstraction and representation, she seeks to express an inner dialogue between subjective experience and objective reality.
After graduating from Camberwell School of Art, Frances won a scholarship to complete her MFA in India. She continued to work there for 30 years as a painter at the Transcendental Meditation organisation, a global non-profit charity.
Frances enjoys painting the local Sussex and Hampshire landscapes, but also travels widely and paints in many different countries. Her paintings are exhibited and collected internationally.
