Sophie Mckay Knight – Artist


Welcome to my Website and thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoy looking at the images of my work and reading about what I’m doing. I now have a Facebook and Twitter presence online, so please click on the links if you’d like to see and read further. You can email me through my Contact page, so if there’s anything you’d like to say, please do get in touch.

I am always happy to discuss commissions, be they imaginary or portrait based.

The visual sources and inspiration for my work come simply from observing all kinds of people in all sorts of situations. I can be inspired by anything and everything! I ‘collect’ images of people from everywhere – often remembering a scene I have witnessed; sometimes responding to a fictional and/or historical character. I am very interested in storytelling, everyday magic, and the blurring of zones. Other things which inspire me are memory, reflections, imprints and history – things which I believe can survive through time.

Recently I have become interested in what’s happening ‘inside’ the body, as well as observing what happens on the outside, and I am beginning to incorporate scientific imagery into my work (see Latest news for further details.) I am also researching the dual concepts of transformation and flight – in all their forms and contexts – and am incorporating this imagery into my work.
