Sophie is a Dutch-born artist, art tutor, writer and art historian, based in the UK. She finds much of her inspiration in art history, especially the Dutch and English 16th and 17th century. She tries to find a dynamic between the past and the present in her painterly depictions of lace, silk, and velvet as well as her portraiture. Her portrait work has been exhibited at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the BP Portrait Award and elsewhere. She paints in oils and pastel.
