About the Artist

Ceramic and fine artist, Katelyn B. Knight has been formally studying countless types of art media since 2011. She started her studies at the University of Arts in animation and film, but quickly fell in love with oil painting and classical drawing. Taking a break from formal education in the arts, she continued creating alongside her studies in science and engineering. When her career abruptly ended in engineering, she returned to, and completed her formal education in the fine arts at Bucks County Community College (BCCC). There, she focused on sculpture and ceramics and is now employed as a 3D Art Studio Technician and a volunteer Ceramic Studio Technician. 

 

Katelyn’s work in her many time-honored media, ceramic sculpture and functional pottery, graphite and charcoal drawing, oil painting, and plaster sculpture, is based around the aesthetic beauty of shape and form that is inspired by the Ancient Greek culture through pottery, artistic study, and stories and themes of women in Greek mythology. 

 

Katelyn participated in the 2019 Student Dodge Show, where she was awarded the Echo Lake Drawing Award. She showcased three sculptures as a Bucks County Community College staff member in the 2021 BCCC NASAD Group Show. Three more sculptures were also displayed in the 2021 BCCC Winter Group Showcase. Katelyn participated and was awarded third place in 3-dimensional in the international 11th Annual “All Women” 2022 Art Exhibition. She also participated and was awarded fifth place in 3-dimensional in the international 6th Annual Black and White Art Exhibition. Katelyn showcased three ceramic relief sculptures in the Bucks County Community College Art in Bloom show.
