Artist - Sophie McKay Knight

Available in the Gallery

Sophie studied Fine Art at Edinburgh College of Art & University between 1992-1997, gaining an MA (Hons), and has been practicing as a professional artist ever since, working and exhibiting throughout the UK and abroad.

Her practice has always been and remains, firmly rooted in drawing, painting and printmaking and she loves to employ a mixed media approach in her work, often combining traditional drawing techniques with different forms of printmaking and text.

Thematically, Sophie’s work is concerned with the human figure, nature, science, transformation and magic. Although it mostly depicts people, many other things inform her imagery – stories, memory, history, the supernatural.

Sophie has worked professionally with St Andrews University, Art in Healthcare, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Fife Cultural Trust, Perth & Kinross Council and Tate Gallery, Liverpool. She has been a committee member with Visual Arts Scotland, and given workshops across a variety of venues for adults and children.
