Sophie's creative practise is her love
language to the world. With a
profound interest in the
psychological power of colour, and
the belief that colour is a universal
language that can be used to unite.
Sophie produces work to uplift and
transfers an abundance of energy
into pieces. Her explorations take
inspiration from a variety of sources,
from 1970s disco vinyls to wild
swimming, from spirituality to kitsch
and Albertus Seba to Kate Bush.
Since graduating from Falmouth University in 2015 Sophie was commissioned as part of the Channel 4/Arts Council project ‘Random Acts' to direct a short film, ‘Ice Fever', working with animation companies Arthur Cox and Aardman Animations to create a scrumptious adventure into the weird and wonderful secret world of an ice-lolly disco. “Ice Fever” was part of the programming at Encounters Film Festival in Bristol, 2017.

#WhoseFuture represents an age-old struggle for youth resilience, security, agency and the need for positive social change. Celebrating a striking portfolio of bold visual imagery from Rising's network of young creatives, this project presents a unique opportunity for us all to listen, reflect and act, and for our young people to be heard.
Rising Arts Agency is a community of young creative thinkers aged 16-30. Their mission is to empower Bristol's under-represented young people to fulfil their creative ambitions and to affect wider social change through the arts. The agency is co-created with and for young people, and is fiercely independent.
