The Picture Room, Newlyn Art Gallery

Sophie’s work is focused on simplicity, joy and harmony. She captures the simple joys 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. Sophie graduated from Central Saint Martins in 1992 with a BA Hons in Fashion and Textile Design. After leaving college she worked full-time as a painter, illustrator and textile designer creating bestselling images for cards, gift wraps, homewares, and magazine and book illustrations for both the UK and worldwide.

Clients have included Marks & 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 UK since 1988. Galleries include Ainscough Contemporary, Liberty London, Byre Gallery, Morgans, and Among the Pines.
