Artist Bio - Laureen Knight
Laureen Knight is a Melbourne based artist, who began expressing her creativity through drawing and painting since childhood.
Family life and work caused intermittent commitment to painting and various art forms, but it could not disappear!
Watercolours have been the main focus, by taking time out at weekend workshops and short term classes to gain further knowledge and experience. She continues to enjoy painting seascapes, boats, Yarra Valley, landscapes, birds and challenges on canvas and paper. However, she now teaches in schools part time, to allow more time painting as a semi professional artist. This extra time has given her the opportunity to try her hand at paint-pouring techniques, thus indulging herself in lavish colours to produce abstract art.
Teachers of influence include:Australian watercolourists......... David Taylor, Malcolm Beattie, Herman Pekal and Greg Allen.
Laureen's work has been sold in Australian eastern States over the past 20 years, through shows, exhibitions, cafes, Facebook and Gallery247. She occasionally teaches drawing and painting to small groups and individuals. Additionally she does photography to compliment painting.
