For the Love of Art

By Sophie Armishaw

Sophie Armishaw   I've always had a love of art even when I was a child and started studying BTEC photography as a teen where I fell in love with capturing the every day through my own lens. I then went on to study a BA photography degree at Falmouth University.


In my final year at university in 2018, I started to experiment with mixed media of my photographic work and adding colour through the medium of paint. This development in my work was inspired by having a tutorial with the wonderful photographer Chrystel Lebas, she suggested that I should add a new dimension to my photography at the time and I then found my love of painting from that moment on. Through this experimentation I went on to develop and find my own style of abstract painting.

I've always found that being outside in nature and by the sea, ironic now that I currently live in the midlands but I love the freedom you get from being by the sea and also the colour that’s created in your mind from the every day.


This inspires me and my artwork and gives me that drive to continue painting and exploring the world through colour and my palette knife.
