I live to make art. I have always been a creative at heart and painting is the process by which I gather and express the inner world of the mind and heart. At my core to paint feels like an exhale of all of this.


ABOUT SOPHIA

Sophia works out of her home studio which allows her to paint into the night while her children sleep. She grew up in Spain near the ocean and her paintings often reference water and a nostalgia of childhood days spent in the sun by the Spanish sea. 


ABOUT THE PROCESS

My work has an emphasis on fluidity, depth and motion. I work in layers creating depth through textures and overlays. My latest pieces are painted on hand-prepared wooden panels and sealed with resin. This process produces a glass finish which intensifies both the colours and dimension.
