Sue Carol Knight
Sue Carol Knight was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas and traveled the United States with her Air Force family. She says she feel like she must have been born with a pencil in her hand because she drew everything in sight and still does. Knight has a diverse background, having worked as an architectural assistant, a children’s story illustrator, and for private and government contractors illustrating tanks, bombs, explosions and F-16’s. She credits all of these experiences as a contribution to her skill as a portrait artist. Knight trained at New York’s prestigious Art Students’ League where she discovered that painting the human figure was her passion. She is degreed in Art Education.
Knight’s portraits exemplify her commitment to capturing the essence of her subject, and she is equally talented in the traditional Old Masters’ style and the modern, informal style. Using the finest Belgium Linen canvas, Knight begins by painting a rough sketch of her subject in oil, adding layers of color and detail as she continues painting while documenting the process with photographs from beginning to completion. Her portraits require 6 to 12 months to complete.
