I have always been interested in the art of Storytelling.

 

I grew up listening to audio books and radio plays, loved the theatre, film and music; studied English Literature, Language, and History and spent much of my time training to be a ballet dancer and painting.

 After graduating with a degree in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art, I moved into Film. Initially I had wanted to become a Film Director but I found myself gravitating towards offline Film Editing, where I found Magic. Pure excitement.

This realm had all the tools to create a world in which to touch others through emotion, feeling, texture, sound, picture. Another arena to find soulful truth. When done well, it has the ability to connect us in the most profound way.

I have predominately been known for my work in the world of Music Videos and Advertising; and have been privileged to work with world class directors, actors, musicians and artists on many award winning pieces.

In 2020 I started to build this website. With the onset of the global pandemic, which coincided with my Father's terminal cancer progressing, I stepped out of the Editing world to help my parents and focus on building a new career as an Artist.

This website is a work in progress.

With life circumstances changing, I started to tap back into the layers within, channeling the energy I used to dedicate to film collaborations, into new work that stems from my creative intuition, and I've been inspired by the rediscovery of images and interests from my past that lay dormant for a time.

Alongside, I was guided to focus attention on energy healing and find avenues to incorporate this into my artwork for the benefit others. The first incarnation has taken the form of the carving of a Angelic Reiki energy healing deck in the form of Tarot. First in black and white lino prints and then as a digitally hand painted version. The lino prints are for sale and printed directly from the carved moulds. The colour Tarot deck I hope to be available to buy in early 2022.

 

Ultimately, I wish for this website to be an expression of life and it's journey.

Thank you!

The name of this site combines my given surname 'Knight', with my Mother's family name 'Devine.'

I wanted to honour both sides of my lineage, and give a nod to the strong ancestral line of Wise Women (herbalist/midwifery) on my Mother's side.
