Odeceixe, Portugal

Sophie 3I have been a passionate painter for as long as I can remember.
My heart's desire is to remind people through my paintings of the mystery and preciousness of their lives.
To remind them that in darkness there is also always hidden light. Yes, I would even go so far and invite each to surrender to the darkness.
Because then the alchemy begins, the transformation.

My vision is to bring an art into the world that revolutionizes in a gentle, silent, feminine way. An art that is not exclusively aimed at the intellectual upper class, who are still represented in today's unfortunately very male dominated art world, but an art that is accessible to everyone, because it is universal.

In my work I consciously choose certain materials.
Gold leaf is for me personally a wonderful means to express the preciousness and sacredness of life.
Through the simplicity of colors and shapes, I focus on the essentials, achieving an expression of universality.
I work with pigments that I collect in the nature that surrounds me here on the beautiful southwest coast of Portugal and then process them into colors.
So, by and large, my working process is a very sensual one and I can't think of anything else I would prefer doing.

I have a great interest in networking with other artists as well as planning joint exhibitions.

Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the Peace of God.

Those who seek the light are merely covering their eyes. Light is in them now.
