Raised in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, Sophie is greatly influenced by her natural surroundings. Having studied Fine Arts, Environmental Design and Landscape Architecture, she is keen to create places and art that offer similarly formative experiences for others. Working as a Landscape Architect in Vancouver, BC, Sophie is grateful to serve as an environmental advocate and steward in a profession that demands creative problem solving. 

 

Sophie's artistic practice mirrors the professional, examining themes of ecology and connection.​ She uses textiles and stitching to cultivate a form of slow expressionism.  The material she uses favours slow, sustainable, and hand-crafted sources. Often her thread and fabric is hand-dyed with natural materials foraged from her local landscapes, using an intentional and meaningful process that considers the various scales of time and place.
