Lifting Sound

Bodorgan (3)


Sophie Keir was born at Plas Newydd (now a National Trust house), on the Island of Anglesey in 1954. Influenced by North Wales and it’s dramatic scenery and weather. Sophie paints rich, textured landscapes often scraping back, revealing and obscuring. A process that takes many hours before the final image emerges. She works from her imagination but always with an atmosphere in her mind. Surrounded by grand, formal paintings as a child, her work achieves an unusual synergy between traditional and contemporary styles. Sophie now works between her studio in Haslemere and her studio on Anglesey (once the Studio of Sir Kyffin Williams) over looking the Menai Straits and the mountains of Snowdonia.
