Stephen Knight was born and educated in London, England and has lived in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, France and now the USA, where he became a citizen in May 2004. A resident of Centerville, Cape Cod, he paints scenes of coastal and Maritime New England. Mr. Knight has studied with master artist Joseph McGurl, Donald Demers and T Allen Lawson.
Preferring to paint outdoors (en plein air) Stephen relates "I need to be at one with the scene to capture the immediacy of time and place. I am fascinated by the effects of light and its role in creating mood and atmosphere".
Mr. Knights work has been featured throughout the Cape Cod Art Association's All New England and National Shows, as well as The Guild of Boston Artist New England Representational Shows. Stephen was also featured in the Chatham Creative Arts Center All Cape Cod Exhibitions.
