“Sophie decided from a young age that art would always be a big part of her life so it was no surprise that she chose to do a degree in Art and Design at Nottingham Trent University. Soon after graduating she went off travelling around the world with her sketchbooks and camera. She settled in Brazil for a few years where she taught Art in a school and also painted original works of art inspired by the tropical location.
These days she is settled in the beautiful town of Swanage, Dorset, a place of extreme natural beauty where she enjoys daily dog walks around the stunning coastline. It is here that she is inspired by the ever-changing colours and mood of her surroundings.
Sophie works in various media including watercolour, pastels and acrylics but a few years ago discovered oil inks with which she has been experimenting ever since. She loves the intensity of the colour and the way that the inks can be layered and worked into. These are the results of those experiments.”
