Studio 4- Botanical Art- Sophie Newnham

Welcome to my Artists At Home gallery!

I am Sophie, 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. 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. 

Portraiture has become another strong element of my work and I have made it onto the reserved list for Sky Portrait Artist of the Year twice with my self portraits in oils.  Fingers crossed for this year's entry!  I love to teach and run a series of workshops for both children and adults both virtually and in person.  Teaching has created a freedom in my style of working which I am keen to pursure further.

Thank you to all those who have visited, sent me uplifting messages and bought a piece of art to hang on their walls. If you would like to be kept up to date on future sales, have been inspired to try your hand at future still life and portrait workshops, or would like to sign your children up to a virtual art class, send me an email at sophienewnhamart@gmail.com 

To reserve an artwork for purchase, please email sophienewnhamart@gmail.com and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
