Jennifer KnightonJennifer Knighton

Jennifer Knighton was born in 1943 in Blakely, Georgia.

Jennifer started painting after she bartered away some old metal toys in exchange for a pickup truck load of canvases.  She has now been painting for almost two decades and is known for working on tin with a bright color palette.  Finding inspiration in the flowers she grows, she spends most days sketching and painting from a small guest house situated in the middle of her gardens.  She also paints from photos she’s taken while traveling and many of her landscapes are from her imagination.  With a bachelor’s degree from Georgia College, Jennifer taught elementary school in Early, Gordon and Hart Counties. Creating works of art has become a second career.
