Salley Knight is an artist who hand-dyes her silk to achieve the precise colors that are her signature. In her larger pieces, the color interacts with light: in her smaller work, the color itself is the strength. The dreamscape of childhood is her subject matter – either as the immersive environment of light at dawn, or the whimsical “learning” through illustration.
Salley Knight graduated with an MFA from Lesley College of Art and Design in 2011. She grew up on a farm in Virginia and currently lives on Squam Lake in New Hampshire.
