Sophie is a Wānaka based water colour artist.
'Through my art I seek to evoke an inner calm and sense of purpose with my interpretations of mountains, lakes, beaches and clouds. I paint in watercolour on paper with a limited colour palette which acts as a poignant reminder of the moments of clarity gained from the effects of stillness and awareness. Daily meditation and gratitude journaling are an important part of my wellness and therefore contribute significantly to the success of my art practice. I also often make personal discoveries that lead to growth and I reflect upon them visually through my art.'
‘I've found I'm drawn to focusing on the process of creation not the end result. I've then discovered that my best works are when I have given everything to the process of creating and have been utterly absorbed with translating my energy onto paper.’
