Sophie graduated from Central Saint Martins in 1992 with a BA(Hons)in Fashion and Textile Design. After college she proceeded to work full time as a painter, illustrator and textile designer creating best selling images for cards, gift wraps, homewares, magazine and book illustrations both for the UK and worldwide. Clients have included Marks and Spencer, Ladybird Books, The Art Group, Artists’s Cards Ltd, Dunoon and the Cornish Bakery. Sophie’s paintings have been shown and sold in galleries around the U.K. since 1988.
Sophie’s work is focused on simplicity, joy and harmony. She captures small moments in life by painting the essence of a scene or group of objects. Her paintings are primarily driven by colour with an emphasis on the power colour has to evoke positive emotions.
Sophie lives in Penzance and works in a studio, a few minutes walk from the seafront.
This painting is shown at Atelier Beside the Sea as part of the Bloom Exhibition.
