Sophie Patel is a self taught artist from London, currently living in Bedfordshire, UK. She is passionate about producing artwork that brings smiles to peoples faces and warmth to their hearts.
Sophie undertook a Diploma in Illustration and Digital Illustration through London Art College to further her knowledge and skill base. She studies other artists on YouTube and their own pages and blogs to help her grow as an artist and attributes her skill to continued practice and hard work!
Sophie discovered Graphite at a young age and has always been drawn to the medium that allows close attention to small details. Coloured pencil seemed a natural next step to introduce colour but retain the level of detail she aspires to. Sophie fell in love with the colour pencil medium and uses professional high grade pencils that have a high lightfast rating (meaning they will not be affected by light in museum conditions for up to 100 years) This quality, along with high pigment, allows coloured pencils to be used to produce beautiful artworks that will stand the test of time.
Sophie is now married with two small children that take up much of her time, when she is not drawing! Sophie now works as an artist accepting bespoke commissions and producing her own artwork for sale.
