Studio 4- Botanical Art- Sophie Newnham

Welcome to my Artists At Home gallery and thank you for visiting!  Send me an email at sophienewnhamart@gmail.com  to keep up to date on my latest painting drops, upcoming workshops and collaborations or just to say 'hi', I'd love to hear from you.

My name is Sophie, I am a botanical and portrait artist and recently awarded Fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists in 2019. The main focus of my work over the last 20 years has been a series of large scale, botanical oil paintings, highlighting the beauty and intricacy of nature that I see around me, mainly amongst the parks and gardens of West London as well as further afield. I have painted many subjects but often find myself drawn to a beautiful flower that I feel compelled to paint. It is their energy, intensity of colour and ability to hold the observer in the present moment that I find so alluring. Much of life now is fast paced, rushing from one thing to another and it is rare that we make time for stillness and presence. To paint is a privilege as I am able to closely observe a living subject and condense what I see into a single piece that can be appreciated well beyond its fleeting lifespan.  The flowers I have painted over the years have served as a creative biography, mapping out the path of my life as an artist and as a creative expression of life as I know it.  The paints, depths of details and colours have become my guiding light, as a way to express my inner spirit whilst my physical body has had to overcome many challenges.

Portraiture has become another strong element of my work, with the self-portrait at the foundation.  I have made it onto the reserved list for the Sky Portrait Artist of the Year twice with my self-portraits in oils, which has motivated me to pursue this further.  I love to teach and run a series of workshops for both children and adults both virtually and in person. Through teaching and portraiture I have begun to uncover a new found energy, honesty, openness and freedom in my style of working.

I hope you are enjoying seeing all the art created by the wide range of talented artists here.  To purchase any of the paintings and drawings directly, just head over to my website:

 

For any questions you have regarding a piece you have seen, send an email to sophienewnhamart@gmail.com and I'll be in touch asap. To see a piece before purchasing, a time can be arranged either in person or virtually. I look forward to hearing from you.
