Hi, my name is Sophie Marie and I am a contemporary abstract artist based in Lancashire, England. My first memory of art was around aged 20. I had an intense craving to paint and was gifted an easel and watercolour set for my birthday. With that I painted my first picture, a house with a white fence, trees and two birds flying in the sky. This painting is still in my art studio. I like it however the birds are very questionable.
Art and creation for me is life. Of no less importance as these earlier pieces were a representation of a release of accumulated suppressed emotion. Without these there would not be the work that is emerging now and in some way there would not be me.
Art has helped me to connect with myself on a deeper level and I have been able to accept and embrace who I am at my core. Isolation no more. I am a creative individual and with that comes its unique struggles. You know when you have touched what is true in your heart as you can not see any other path and you no longer question or make excuses for how you are living.
My creative path to date has led me to a deep level of self awareness and enlightenment. I live my life with depth, holding God close to my heart and following what feels ‘right’ to me. Through my art I hope to inspire you to connect with what makes you feel alive, to follow your own path and live with peace and meaning.
With much love
