Her paintings are energy on a canvas.
Inna Knox’s vibrant colors and skillful use of a palette knife capture life and movement on the street. Her impressionistic oils sweep the viewer in, as if he or she were part of the scene.
Inna Nasonova was well known in St. Petersburg for her elaborate watercolor of The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. The magnificent painting was one of her top sellers with tourists.
She grew up in Russia, attending the prestigious St. Petersburg Art University in interior design and selling paintings to pay her way through school. She later graduated from fashion design school and worked as a designer and seamstress for well-to-do women.
But her path didn't end in Russia. When she immigrated to the U.S. in 2000, she experienced some things for the first time, including working with oils.
Now Inna Nasonova Knox is happily ensconced in her studio in the Knoxville area where she also conducts painting classes. Her famous cathedral, in oil, hangs in the hallway, but she has fallen in love with Knoxville's people and street scenes.

STATEMENT
“My Russian grandfather was a painter,” Knox says. “He died three months before I was born. I started painting as a preschooler, but it wasn’t until I was a teenager that I caught a glimpse of one of his oil paintings. Painting is part of my nature. It’s what I do.
“In the last year, I’ve started focusing on local urban scenes. At first I was taking out people, signs and cars, but then I decided I wanted to leave them in. I like to record life and time in my paintings. I paint the clothes people are wearing — purses, umbrellas and shoes. In a hundred years, my great-grandchildren will say ‘Look at that!’"

SEE HER WORK
Knox has sold more than 400 street scenes, landscapes, animals and commissioned portraits -- children portraits are her specialty. She has shown and sold her work in Lithuania, Ukraine, Russia, Aruba and around the U.S. Her work has been displayed at the Art Market Gallery, Tyson McGhee Airport, Art Galleria, Art Market gallery, Nashville Bennett Gallery, and she is a member of Art Market Gallery and Art & Culture Alliances.
