About Sandra Michelle Knight

I am a Multi Award Winning Artist who thrives on artistic challenges.  Coming from a creative family I was exposed to artistic pursuits at an early age and found in drawing a satisfying pastime that my parents actively encouraged.   Later on I completed an Art and Design course covering  the principles of perspective, anatomy, drawing from life, design principles, colour theory etc.  I  was unable to take up painting due to family and  work commitments till many years later.
I have been exhibiting, selling and winning awards for my work for about 20 years and consider myself as self-taught in many respects.  Along the way I have gained my painting knowledge through watching demonstrations, doing workshops  and years of personal experimentation.
For many years I worked in Pastel, but now prefer Mixed Media, Acrylic and Oil on stretched canvas.  My work has become more abstracted in recent years, but I still believe  the traditional basics as being essential to diversify and progress.
My inspiration for self expression is a spontaneous reaction to colour, movement, and light in the world around me, which I endeavour to transfer to canvas in a way which inspires and uplifts the viewer.

I am currently a Featured Artist on Bluethumb and Artlovers web sites and also exhibit at many local art exhibitions and shows.
A few of my highlights have been winning awards: 
Best Painting in Show (any medium) to $800 at Camberwell Rotary Exhibition 
Best Landscape/Seascape in Show (any medium) - Brighton Art Societyl 
Best Painting in Show – Kingswood College 
Best Pastel in Show – Waverley Art Society Annual Exhibition 
Best Pastel in Show – Spring Exhibition – Sherbrook Art Society 
Best Pastel in Show – Mount Waverley Art Exhibition 
Plus many Commended and Highly Commended Awards at various Art Exhibitions around Victoria, Group Exhibitions and The Australian Guild of 
Realist Artists. Commissioned to paint a Local Scene by Knox Leader Newspaper. Exhibited in Without Pier, Sherbrooke, Mulgrave and AGRA Galleries.
