“What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you dreamed?
And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven and plucked a strange and beautiful flower?
And what if when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?”
Born in 1972 in Vienna, Austria Sophie has been encouraged by her mother a porcelain painter and her grandmother an enamel artist to craft with her hands from early childhood.
In 1990 Sophie moved to London where she studied Art History and received a BA in Interior/Film Design from Kingston University. This cosmopolitan city opened up her eyes to the multitude of cultures, their colorful expressions and the infinite creative freedom.
More impressions were collected through her traveling years 1996/97 which took her through India, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, Fiji and ultimately the United States where she found her new home.
Besides working as a set decorator and art director on commercials, music videos and feature films she has been part of numerous art shows particularly the LA based sculpture group Solids.
