Margaret Knott is a painter and printmaker. She paints Still Lives, the  countryside and along the Thames, working quickly in gouache, pencil and everything except a brush.  

She has discovered that her work as a printmaker, combined with her experience as a designer, has had an enormous influence on the way she views her subject. In turn, her method of painting has become reflected in her etchings where she uses aquatint, litho crayon and line to achieve the painterly effect she desires.


She attended St. Martin’s School of Art in the fifties, and then worked as a designer in advertising at CPV, Ogilvy & Mather and Hans Schleger & Assocs. Her work was published in ‘Designers in Britain’. Later She learnt ceramics at Putney School of Art, taught it, and now does etching there.

She has exhibited extensively over the last decades in London, Paris, Singapore and New York and numerous UK exhibitions, she is represented by Will’s Art Warehouse, London
