Yearning to paint with expressive freedom, local artist Phillipa Knight, has found her happy place through the process of intuitive painting.

For this artist, intuitive painting is recording onto canvas whatever enters the mind at any given moment. Beginning with applying a background of random colours from a warm pallet, then adding preconceived shapes, pictures or symbols of significance. Finally, the artist lets her intuition dictate the composition and tonal quality of the painting.

Each intuitive painting can be described as dynamic, evolving until the artist reaches a feeling of resolve. Until that stage, colours, composition, even the symbols depicted may change several times.

Knight’s love of nature inspires her creativity, a multimedia artist her artistic disciplines include jewellery, ceramics, drawing and painting. Self-taught, her drawing skills developed at a very young age and while recovering from a serious health issue ‘creativity’ became a major part of her life.

"Life is a journey of self-discovery, of learning and growing each day. I express this through my paintings... follow my journey, I hopes it will inspire yours."
