Sophie's booking calendar for commissions for 2024 is now full, but please register here for cancellation list, waitlist, mailing list and expressions of interest for 2025. Thankyou.


I am a professional portrait painter and I also paint still life, landscape and figurative works for exhibition.

I paint portrait from live sittings or photographs and get a lot of requests for posthumous portraits, which are becoming a bit of a niche area for portraiture for me.

I received my technical training in Florence, Italy, where I studied the oil painting techniques of the old masters.

Please browse through my galleries and feel free to contact me if you have any questions about any of the works.

I paint portraits and other works on commission and exhibit regularly in commercial galleries. My work is represented in private collections throughout Australia, the USA and Europe.
