Born 1973—Mixed media artist
Stewart Knight creates painted images and sculptures using various layering techniques of paint, varnishes, 2 dimensional as well as 3 dimensional materials to create a dream like worlds filled with simplistic visions that layer together along with characters interlaced between the real and almost dream like thoughts.. that can some days be ethereal and light and playful to worlds that are heavy dark and forbodened with disenchanted shadows and a almost nightmarish feel…Stewart currently works out of SpinStar Studio #6 located on the second floor of The AFAS Center For The Arts.

After many years of focused classical training and study she followed in the footsteps of the Classical Masters through advancement of her skills. This education has infused her work to a higher level of ability and both her body painting and commissioned painting have received national, local and global accolades.
