Knight started painting in her teens in her home town of Nottingham to help support her family. Influenced by Impressionism and the Newlyn School in Cornwall, Knight's subject-matter is contemporary without being avant-garde. Dismissed by Modernists for her lack of interest in formal experiment, Knight’s insistent realism made her one of the most popular artists of the time.
