Contact Details

Hello, my name is Sophie and I am a practicing artist and freelance arts practitioner. I have worked with community groups and young people on a wide range of exciting projects, from creating contemporary murals to delivering arts based workshops. I am happy to tailor my sessions to work with all ages and abilities.

Activities I can deliver include:

  • Street Art School
  • Mural Design + Installation (temporary or permanent)
  • School Workshops (curriculum based or delivering visual arts)
  • Portrait Projects (paintings, life portraiture, distortion in portraiture)
  • The Science of Art sessions
  • Pop Up Exhibitions (space needs to be provided)
  • People and Place Workshops (exploring urban and interactive art)

Organisations I have worked with include:

I specialise in painting and visual arts. I have a degree in Fine Art and have background knowledge of arts history and artistic processes. I have exhibited around the UK and in 2013 I took an artist residency in China. I am happy to combine talks about my practice and knowledge of art with any activity. My work is very flexible and I am able to run workshops based on most areas of the curriculum, but particularly in art, history, science and humanities.

Contact me to discuss any ideas/projects and together we’ll get creative!
