Sophie Corks

Sophie recently moved to Orange in country NSW, with her one-year old daughter and French husband after living in Sydney, Paris and Brighton, UK. Sophie took up painting in 2005 while on her first trip to Italy where she became captivated with the colourful buildings on the Italian coastline. Since then she has been using watercolours and acrylics and her love for bright colours to explore urban landscapes. Sophie focuses on small elements of character-filled buildings and uses particular colour patterns to evoke emotions aiming to portray the atmosphere of a place - sometimes making the viewer feel nostalgic of their time at that place.
