Mention the word “passion” and chances are Knox Welsh will mention the word “art”. The two have long been synonymous for Knox who majored in art during teacher training and went on to teach art at primary and secondary school levels. His paintings often reflect his travels to Europe and North America. People are his current focus – he sets out to capture the emotion of situations. Knox likes to use watercolour for delicate land and seascape work, and acrylics for everything else. He has exhibited and sold work throughout New Zealand and has his own gallery –The Knox Gallery in Bethlehem, Tauranga.
