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 19th (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. 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 privileged 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.

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. You will see some of my new looser style drawings using inks and pens over the AAH weekend.

I look forward to meeting you at our AAH open house weekend.
