Sophie is a French artist based near Toulouse. She obtained her degree at the Beaux Arts in Rennes and furthered her training until 2000.
Since then she has concentrated her work on ‘pastel painting ´en plein air’ that is painting outdoors from life.
´I am a landscape painter who essentially paints outdoors, inspired by nature and who’s subject depends on emotional resonance. I do not have a favourite subject to paint, it is all about being taken up by an atmosphere, being transported. Working from nature is an experience which never leaves me unaffected. There I am both a spectator and an actor. It is a ritual to search, let the view seep in, set up and finally begin.´
