ARTIST: Sophie Kilpatrick
Sophie Kilpatrick is a full-time professional UK based artist, born in Barton Seagrave, Kettering in 1987.
From a young age, she always knew she wanted to paint and create. She exhibited her first piece of art at aged only 4 years old in the Alfred East Gallery, Kettering.
After studying Art & Design at Latimer Community Arts College, Sophie went on to study at the London Art College and specialise in pet portraits in all mediums. This is where she discovered her love and passion for wildlife photo realism.
Sadly, after her mum passing in 2017, Sophie knew she had to focus even more on what she loved, what made her happy and to try and help inspire others to chase their dreams. All of Sophie's energy and passion is now solely directed into creating and capturing tiny details of the beautiful animal kingdom from all around the world.
Working mainly with acrylics and coloured pencils, Sophie wants to remind people how important it is to connect with nature and to not forget how beautiful the world we have around us, truly is...
