SOPHIE JENKINS

Hello, I'm Sophie and here's some blurb about me...

I was born and brought up in the Midlands and have had a passion for art from childhood to present day. I remember making home-made cards for every occasion when I was really little and I still do now. I decided quite young that art would always be a big part of my life so it was no surprise that I chose to do a degree in Art and Design at Nottingham Trent University. Soon after graduating I went off and travelled the world with my trusty sketchbooks and camera. A few years later, I settled in Brazil where I taught Art in a school, ran my own English school and also painted and designed signs for many local restaurants, shops and bars, painted original works of art inspired by the tropical location and designed bikinis for my own little bikini shop (random I know). 

Nowadays I am settled in the beautiful town of Swanage, Dorset where I am raising my amazingly artistic twin daughters and also work as a teacher alongside painting. It is a place of extreme natural beauty and is incredibly inspiring for artists. I enjoy walking daily with my lovely doggy Ruby and take my camera along to capture the amazing surroundings. Although constantly experimenting with different mediums and techniques, I have spent the last couple of years working on a series of seascapes that show the ever-changing mood of the sea and sky on the wonderful Dorset coastline.
