Sophie knight is a surrey based artist; Trained in Fine art and graduated with a first from Croydon School of art. Her work takes on a variety of subject matters; In the past she has taken inspiration from the political undertones of youth subcultures and pop art but also enjoys exploring animal forms and silhouettes. However it is mostly her obsession with colour that drives her artistic passion. Much of her resent work explores vibrant colour and patterns, working in a variety of mixed mediums. Her current work is much more about experimentation with these materials than of a set subject matter.
