Sophie Smallhorn

An artist, consultant and colourist, Sophie’s practice encompasses a broad spectrum of private, public and commercial commissions.

Her work explores the relationships between colour, volume and proportion across prints, sculpture and site specific installations. Sophie’s kaleidoscopic odyssey began at the University of Brighton, where she studied Furniture and Ceramics.

Exhibited and published internationally, her work has also featured in several Royal Academy Summer Shows. Sophie’s reputation as a colour consultant led to her involvement in the London 2012 Olympics, and she continues to work on large-scale public commissions – so where does printmaking fit in?
