Hi, I am Sophie and this is my Art School! I’ve been an artist for nearly 20 years, although I have been painting all my life. I paint in oils and pastel and mostly paint portraits and still life. Most of my still life will have some drapery or just a piece of fabric in it, as I love painting the textures of fabrics such as lace and silk.
I have had many ups and downs during my painter’s life, but some of the highlights were exhibiting at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Pastel Society and the BP Portrait Award.
I have taught workshops from my kitchen for a few years and have now moved my art school online. Here you can enjoy support, a friendly community, workshops and courses and so much more. I love teaching online; it is amazing to be able to help someone on the other side of the world as well as someone just a few miles away.
