Sophie Mackay Knight
"I studied Fine Art at Edinburgh College of Art & University between 1992-1997, gaining a 2:1 MA (Hons), and have been practicing as a professional artist ever since, working and exhibiting throughout the UK and abroad. My practice has always been and remains, firmly rooted in drawing, painting and printmaking.
I love to employ a mixed media approach in my work, often combining traditional drawing techniques with different forms of printmaking and text. I believe that drawing is a direct line to the intuitive aspects of the brain, where ideas can come alive! Thematically, my work is concerned with the human figure, nature, science, transformation and magic. Although it mostly depicts people, many other things inform my imagery – often a scene I have witnessed, a story I have read, or a historical character or event."
