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 exhibited my work at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Pastel Society and the BP Portrait Award amongst many other great places. I have published articles inArtists & Illustrator's Magazineand of course write in my ownBlogregularly.
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.
