Born in 1972, Sophie Carter grew up in Cornwall and has been strongly affected by its light and space and the skies above its sea and coastline.  Her paintings are an absorbing manifestation of the dreams she had as a child of being an artist, something she fulfilled professionally in 2016 after a varied career and raising her family.  Sophie has always drawn and painted, attracted by the abundance of inspiration the Cornish environment affords her.  Her paintngs offer an escape, a sense of enthralling lostness in the beauty of what we see and feel in nature and spirit.

Sophie trained for 3 years at the Newlyn School of Art.  She lives and works with her family in Cornwall.
