Studio - Botanical Art- Sophie Newnham

Welcome to my Artists At Home gallery!  I hope to meet you at our upcoming open studios event, running from Friday June 17th (6-9pm) through Sat and Sun June 21st (11am - 6pm), where you will be able to view and buy a colourful range of my paintings and drawings, in person.  I'm excited to welcome you to my space and to show you the many flowers, plants and vegetables that I love to capture on paper and canvas.

A bit about me as an artist:

I am Sophie, a fine artist and recently awarded Fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists in 2019. The main focus of my work over the past 20 years has been a series of large scale, botanical oil paintings.  The detailed flowers that I paint, highlight the beauty and intricacy of nature I observe and admire around me.  My inspiration is often found amongst the parks and gardens of west London as well as further afield. I have painted many subjects over my career, but often find myself drawn to a beautiful flower that I feel compelled to draw or paint. It is their magical 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 to be still, to appreciate the wondrous details of the world around us. I feel priveleged to be an artist and to be able to closely observe the fleeting world of nature over time. My goal is to 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 also served as my creative biography, mapping out the path of my life as an artist and as a creative expression of life as I experience it.  The paints, depths of details and colours have become my guiding light, as a way to express both the stepping stones and diversions I've experienced in my life.

Portraiture and life drawing have also become strong elements 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. Through teaching and portraiture I have begun to uncover a new found energy, honesty, openness and freedom in my style of working.

I look forward to meeting you at our AAH open house weekend.  Come and enjoy a glass of wine and unique view of all of my art on Friday evening 6-9pm or during Saturday and Sunday between 11-6pm
