Testimonial from Client “Sophie came in at the very last minute to help us with a bar refurbishment in Farringdon producing 2 large murals on the walls. They both look amazing and add incredible colour and vibrancy to the space. The project was completed under tight time constraints and we are thrilled with the results. Looking forward to using Sophie on another project soon.”
An 80 square meter mural commissioned by the Church Road Town team, funded by Bristol City Council. The design was informed by community engagement workshops, helping us to respond to local residents/businesses wishes. The design incorporates images relating to local areas, such as parks, cafes, festivals and also some of the local history, such as the trams.
This mural transformed the play area for the children at St George Pre School. Working in collaboration with Zoe Power, a colourful woodland scene, was painted using oil based paints.
Testimonial from Louisa Munton (Head Teacher) “At Shirehampton Primary School we had the pleasure of working with Sophie to create a mural that brightens our site whilst also sending a very worthwhile message about our health and the environment. Throughout the process Sophie was incredibly conscious about ensuring pupil voice shone through and she provided a range of visual stimuli to encourage productive and thought provoking discussion; this inspired our children who, under Sophie's guidance, become fully immersed in the project and rightly proud of the end product.
Sometimes the thought of working in partnership with an artist is much more attractive than the reality of it taking place as schools are incredibly busy settings, however Sophie worked within the constraints of our children's needs, times of the school day and safeguarding procedures! She was an absolute pleasure to work with and the project has left a lasting impression for our school community; thank you Sophie!”
A Testimonial from the client: "Life of Breath collaborated with Sophie to create a mural in the playground of Shirehampton Primary School along with running a workshop with the pupils. We were so pleased with the outcome and her creative expertise that we immediately commissioned her for another mural in the BRI Respiratory Department waiting room. Working with Sophie has been a wonderful experience. She was professional, easy to work with, very sensitive, and enthusiastically engaged with the spirit of our project's aims to produce two beautiful, uplifting co-created works of art (with students, staff, patients, and researchers) for the community to enjoy."
Sophie’s signature style comprised of colourful layers of vibrant botanical shapes for Kongs Bar Bristol.
A mural for Wonderfields Festival 2018 with a subtle environmental message. The Orangutan is under threat due to the destruction of the rainforest. This has been caused primarily by human activity (intense illegal logging, conversion of forest to palm oil plantations and timber estates, mining, clearing forest for settlements and road construction).
A mural, painted live for Wildscreen Festival in Bristol, inspired by the documentary 'Chasing Coral'. It beautifully captures the devastation of the coral reef. This is depicted in the bottom grey section of the mural, which shows what happens when the algae leaves the coral as the temperature of the water increases.
Sophie also loves working on decorative murals such as this for Quay Street Diner in Bristol’s city centre. The warm botanical vibes are in keeping with the Californian theme of the diner. Sophie loves to combine abstract and botanical shapes, often mixing texture with flat areas of colour, until a balance of elements is created.
