Paintings for peace
Many professional artists have expressed a strong wish to help support the fundraising for the Maharishi Peace Palace by donating their own paintings, drawings, and prints to a special Peace Palace Gallery. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these artworks will now go towards the Peace Palace Furnishings and Fit-Out Fund since all the construction funding is in place.
Also, individuals may wish to donate valuable paintings to the Peace Palace Fund; these will be sold either directly from this website or at auction.

FRANCES KNIGHT - “Distant Figures on a Beach” ~ Oil on Board ~ 30cmx40cm ~ £295
After graduating from Camberwell School of Art in London, Frances Knight won a Commonwealth and British Council Scholarship to do her postgraduate studies in India where she graduated with a 1st class M.F.A. She spent many years in India studying Transcendental Meditation, researching into consciousness and working for a non-profit charity dedicated to creating world peace. Her paintings explore the effects of light, colour and structure in the landscape. She often works outside on location and then returns to the studio to create larger paintings from these studies, exploring further the abstract effects of shape, structure and colour harmony. Her paintings are in private collections in USA , Canada, India and Europe.
“ I am inspired by light, painting on location directly from nature, I seek to communicate that experience of transcendence that is fundamental to all of creation.”
