21x17cm, drypoint etching with hand coloured flower
Sophie's work is all about simplicity, harmony, and the power of colour in its ability to glow, clash or sing. By simplifying objects and scenes she aims to create feelings of joy, escapism and calm with a focus on the small and simple joys in life. Working mainly from life and from sketches, Sophie paints moments from her life: a collection of objects in the home, seasonal fruit and flowers, a morning spent on the beach or garden.
Sophie works from her home studio in Penzance in the west of Cornwall.
