Inna Knox's paintings are energy and time capture on a canvas. Her 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 and Ukraine, 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 artistic path didn't end in Russia. She immigrated to the U.S. in 2000, and happily ensconced in her studio in the Tennessee, Knoxville area where she also conducts painting classes.


As an artist my goal is to record life and time on canvas. I love vibrant colors and the texture the palette knife portrays on canvas. I do a lot of commission paintings for customers throughout the US. I paint cityscapes, landscapes, seascapes, portraits of people and animals.
