”I started being creative from an early age, it started at the beginning and I always knew that my love of drawing and being creative would always be with me. As a child I always had a sketch book on hand and back then I sketched the trees and all of the things I loved, like horses. So even as a child the creative juices were always flowing and I wasn’t at all that interested in school because numbers and science never thrilled me.
I finished high school top of the class in all of the art subjects and within two years went to University studying Fine Art. An artists journey is never finished and is always terribly exciting not knowing what wonderful things lay around the next corner and what new doors will open next. At the beginning of my career when I entered my first exhibitions I was working with pencil and pastel …… I won a few awards which boosted my confidence to explore other mediums and I did so on my own with no mentor, just dabbled and felt my own way, just the way I like it and I still do that to this day”. – Janet Knight
