Sophie Small

Where We're At...

As an artist creating patterns with lino prints Sophie is drawn to the infinite possibilities of pattern-making. This year Sophie has been inspired by the intricacies of origami, Spirograph drawings and folded paper ‘fortune tellers’ exploring the colours, layers and symmetry she finds within them.

She enjoys piecing together and layering shapes and patterns in an irregular format, making each print unique. Working from her home studio and using a ‘Slama’ hand press for relief printing has enabled Sophie to develop her process and grow the size of the finished prints, resulting in the collection of larger pieces you see here.
