About Shannon Carleen Knight

I have been painting, exhibiting and selling my art for over 22 years, but I am also a dancer and certified Somatic Movement Educator. I earned my BA in dance, and never went to art school. I have only a hand full of drawing, painting, printmaking and photography courses under my belt. I have developed my painting technique through experimentation and have garnered priceless knowledge of technique, applications and art history during my time working in art store retail. My painting works often include my photography, and are always densely layered with acrylic paint, collage, graphite, ink and more. I enjoy painting in many styles including portraiture, realism, abstract and graffiti. Since March of 2020, my painting work has been focused on paintings on paper: recycled art by way of painting on top of all of my old journals kept from 2000-2020. This is a huge body of work, and most of it is not available here on Saatchi. To keep current with my artworks, check out my Etsy shop and instagram!
