Sophie Moore

Sophie has always loved drawing and painting, particularly people. At the age of 12 she distinctly remembers deciding she wanted to be a fashion designer, and from that moment that was the path she followed.

After school, Sophie studied art and design at Central Saint Martins, then went on to study Fashion Atelier at UCA. After graduating she went on to work as part of the design team at a fashion brand in London. Sophie moved back home to Cornwall in 2015 to set up life with her now husband, who runs a surf school on the North Coast.

Cornish Character Illustration Prints

Sophie is fascinated with people and clothes; she loves to people watch; hearing about other people’s lives and experiences. Sophie thinks we can learn and grow so much from talking to others.What people wear can express who they are or how they feel.

Through her paintings, she creates characters, with stories, in a certain place and time. Usually walking the coast or swimming in the ocean or relaxing by the sea.
The coast and ocean makes her feel a deep emotion that is different from other parts of her life. Most of her characters facial expressions are lost in the moment or full of certainty and defiance.
