Sophie Bridgland

Sophie says  My work consists of mixed media canvas paintings, which are mostly inspired by animals, florals and natural scenes, although there is nothing that I won't put my hand to. Nothing is off limits when I'm creating a piece of art, I will use any technique or material which comes to mind in the moment. I've never been able to say "this is my process", as it changes with every painting, however I like to focus more specifically on colour and light, as well as expressive strokes over accuracy. My entire body of work so far is extremely varied and I am inspired by living here in Brighton.


In 2017, I won my first award as Hobbycraft's student artist of the year, and in 2018 I was shortlisted for the Pebeo mixed media art competition in London. Following that, I held my first solo art exhibition,  My next  solo exhibition is at Gallery 40,  in the North  Brighton starting Monday 15th - Sunday 21st April.
