I initially trained as an illustrator and obtained first class honours degree. I have worked on numerous books including Alice in Wonderland for Octupus and Beauty & the Beast for Frederick Warne. I undertook many advertising commissions and, with a London agent, worked for some years in this field.

In recent years I have been moving away from the intricate style I'd developed for illustration into larger and more expressive works. I now explore colour and I love taking risks in it's application; the measured chaos. The challenge of creating atmosphere, mood and bringing drama to the landscape is what excites and challenges me.

Recent exhibitions include 'Branching Out' at The Museum in the Park in Stroud with a theme of trees in the park and using a collective approach alongside my own work we created vistas and views with a sense of place. I am currently working towards and exhibition at Gallery An Talla Dearg on the Isle of Skye from October 7-30 2016.

Please browse my galleries to see a selection of my paintings.

I will soon be hosting painting breaks in the beautiful Isle of Skye, click here for KnoydART B&B.
