Sophie Velzian graduated the Slade School of Art with a First Class degree in ’94. She went on to work in web design and undertook a career in technology and change management before being lured back to her love of painting.
She worked in watercolours whilst on sailing around the west coast of Scotland and, in 2018 discovered fused glass, producing artworks inspired by her love of the sea.
In 2020 she moved to Cornwall near Falmouth and the Helford River and over the last 2 years, Sophie has been building her own art studio.
She adores capturing the Cornish coast in oils and the different moods of the coastal scenery and ever changing light. Sophie walks the local beaches every morning with her dog where she witnesses the soul and spirit of the coastline and the emotional connection, she has with these precious places become imbued in her artwork.
