BEHIND THE CANVAS
Sophie is a contemporary painter whose love of nature and architecture is expressed on her canvases. Born and raised in Haliburton Ontario her interest in art began at a young age thanks to an encouraging family and artistic community. She remains in Haliburton where she feels her most creative and spends her days painting with her dog Escher at her side.
She focuses primarily on high detailed cityscapes and unique thread paintings which break down landscapes into their simplest line and form and embraces a more minimal approach. Although there are many styles to her art, Sophie's aim is to create art that incorporate the small details found in our bustling world and capture intimate details that most might overlook at first glance. She began exhibiting her work in January 2017.
Right now art is all about experimenting with new mediums, enjoying the environment around her, and capturing it in any style the canvas sees fit.
