Sophie is an artist-maker who lives and works in Somerset, South West of England.
The processes of printmaking, photography, drawing and collage are used throughout her work and she has a particular love of screenprinting, for its versatile nature.
Intuition plays a big part in her making process. Ideas are rarely fully formed at the start but are developed through the actions of making and doing.
Sophie believes her inspiration can be found in all sorts of places and often strikes when you least expect it, but more than often, ideas and images are gathered from her immediate surroundings.
The recurring subjects of architecture and the human figure appear throughout her work, but is not limited to these themes. Inspiration can spark on a journey, be excited by the urban environment, or people watching. It can be found while admiring the intricate beauty of plants, or the way sunlight falls the subject. While noticing connections between disparate things like repeated linear and skeletal structures found within our bodies and in buildings, and in plants. Her work also contains elements of memory, nostalgia and has a way of portraying emotions that she funds difficult to put into words.
