Sophie painted and drew throughout her youth. In both middle and high school, she had a passion for perfumes and wanted to become a professional "nose". At the time, by practicing every day, she could recognize more than 300 fragrances. Not able to continue in this direction, she studied biochemistry and later entered the world of cosmetics. During her studies, creating lipsticks, powders and other cosmetics was her passion. After working for ten years in this field, Sophie began to question her choices and identified what would really make her happy: painting, decorating and cooking.
Thus was born a project offering a range of graphic, figurative and abstract paintings for children's rooms and kitchens. Gradually, the decorative aspect gave way to a real artistic approach. With a natural pencil stroke, and her instinctive knowledge of colours, Sophie learned her artistic techniques merely by painting much of the time. Since 2010, she has focused on creating abstract paintings.
A "matiériste" painter (post-war movement supported by Michel Tapie) and visual artist, she likes thickness, plaster, glued objects, cardboard, and newspapers. She uses everyday materials and transforms them, revisiting and sublimating them. Sophie works in two ways: with coatings, textures and structures that she scrapes, and collages made of cardboard and newspapers to which she adds objects. The colours, the graphical power of writing and the strength of certain raw materials leave an imprint on the canvas and allow the artist a greater freedom of interpretation.
Her approach to the world is sensory, visual and graphic. Her paintings are pictorial expression of emotions, feelings, thoughts or comments about others, the environment and the world. Through her work, she asks or states facts, is ironic or has fun. Sophie tries to give'' touch'' to a vision.
