Colour In your Life Paula Knight

Featured artist Paula Knight on Colour In Your Life Season Twelve (12). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.

Paula Knight grew up beside beautiful Mount Maunganui Beach in the Bay of Plenty. In London, she worked in design and studied life painting in oils at Wimbledon School of Art. A two-year journey traveling through Africa saw her botanical painting career begin.

Paula’s background as a watercolor botanical artist shows the intimate detail of her work.

“With the botanical studies, I only paint from life to gain the purest understanding of color, texture, form, and light.”

Paula’s work has hung in numerous galleries around New Zealand and has attracted international attention. Paula has exhibited in the Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Fest since its beginnings; both her work and her garden have a distinctive New Zealand native appeal.

Paula has had two series of NZ Flora and Fauna paintings published by an international card company and has featured on magazine covers. Paula’s paintings and gardens have been featured on the Australian garden television series Garden Gurus.

Her paintings frequently feature New Zealand coastal landscapes. Paula lives on an island, there is water all around her; she loves the space between land and sea… the coast. Her recent paintings feature shifting shades of blue turquoise and green. “I’m into tranquility in my work at the moment.”
