ORIGINAL PAINTING by Sophie Fois.
This is an original painting by Sophie Fois as part of our 'Expressions of the Horse' Exhibition from 8th-23rd October 2016.
Born in a beautiful Oxfordshire village in 1992 I have had the pleasure of being surrounded by the rural countryside that has helped fuel my passion for the love of animals. My enthusiasm of absorbing more skills led me to enrol onto the crafts based Decorative Arts Degree at Nottingham Trent University.
Alongside my studies I began drawing portraits of my pets to give to family and friends. I received such positive responses and was getting more and more enquiries about my work. This triggered me to begin my own commission-based business where I could offer my skills to the public.
My main aim when creating each piece is to capture that certain expression and character, like that twinkle in the eye or the slightly off centred nose that gives each subject its personality.
My ambition is to continue to develop my skills and confidence to allow me to grow as an artist.
