Sophie’s paintings have been shown and sold in galleries since 1988 when she was studying at art school. Her 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 with a strong emphasis on colour and the power it has to evoke positive emotions.
