Sophia has dedicated her creative passion to capturing the depth and beauty that colours the human spirit.
Born and raised in British Columbia she was first inspired by nature. At Concordia University, where she completed her BFA, realistic portraiture became the center of her practice. Realism allows Sophia to question her relationship with truth while giving space for meaningful reflection. Observation plays a key role in her artistic process as she explores the forms, light and colour that comprises her subjects. The creation of art is viewed as a fascinating game of light as she attempts to recreate a scene.
We are meant to remember our connection with ourselves, each other, and the world around us. Through portraiture Sophia intends to create a pause in your day. The hope is that you may connect with the subject as a mirror through which to view yourself.
In 2015 she moved to New Mexico. Here her practice was transferred to the stage with The 3 Painters and Art Explosion, doing speed painting productions with an incredible team of artists. Sophia has helped design and perform in corporate shows from Tanzania to Panama and around the US for clients such as the NBA, Duke University, Supercell, Doterra, and Behr Paint to name a few.
She also performs with the troupe Artrageous combining all the arts in a 90-minute theatrical production. This invigorating and dynamic form of art allows her to work with a team to bring her creative skills to a new and wider audience.
Ultimately, her goal is to inspire beauty and expand notions of possibility in the lives of others through art.
