Sera Knight is a well-known international artist. Born, in Ankara, Turkey, Sera has a degree in Architecture. She lived in Stavanger, Norway from 1980 to 1993 and worked as an architect in the oil industry. She moved back to UK when her husband’s job was repatriated and studied with Liz Seward Relfe until Liz retired from teaching.
She lives in Woking, Surrey and is a member of various art societies and exhibits her work regularly with these.
Regardless of the subject, her aim is to be able to use the light cleverly, create a mystical atmosphere together with technical and emotional strength. Sera also paints on glass objects to the effect of stained glass and exhibits these separately
She’s exhibited in London (with SWA and RI at the Mall Galleries and part of joint exhibitions at the Gallery of St Martin in the Fields, Turkish Embassy and Abney Hall in Stoke Newington). She regularly exhibits in Norway and Turkey and had one-man exhibitions in both countries. Her work is in private collections in UK, Europe, USA and Australia.
Her work represents a very good investment that will appreciate over time. Her paintings of dancers have been made into a fundraising calendar for 2009 in USA. In addition, some of her paintings of dancers have been used by design firms in USA. As a result she was approached by a gallery in Beverly Hills to take part in an International competition.
Sera is also popular among GSCE and A level students and has been chosen as the artist to be studied for their course work many times. Sera teaches adult education classes and tutors private groups and holds workshops and gives demos in watercolour, acrylic, mixed media and drawing mediums.
