DESIGN BUILD INSTALL
This site-specific aspect of the work is very important to Sophie; it is about getting art out of the gallery and into the public arena. Sophie also creates pieces for private commission.
How I work
The work usually begins with a surreal medley of raw materials, perhaps some stainless-steel medical equipment, antique chocolate moulds, teeth from large farm cutting machinery, circular saw blades and car suspension springs.
A spring mattress becomes a sheep, garden shears become a bird or cutlery becomes fingers and toes. The sculptures may grow organically as new objects are found or added. Each project is unique in terms of raw material and scale.
Events and Shows

I am happy to announce that two of my sculptures have again been chosen to be exhibited at this very prestigious exhibition, at the Mall Galleries, London.
