Sophie Abbott is an abstract painter creating atmospheric paintings which capture the essence of a place in time.
She lives and works from her studio in Brighton, where the sea provides a perfect and ever-changing backdrop. It’s in this environment that she explores in her fluid, experimental style.
She describes her paintings as a spontaneous, sensual reaction to the sea, sky and landscape, and they are united by a joyous use of colour. She uses memories of landscapes to inform each canvas, and often paints en plein air, immersed in the world.
