Sophie Berger artwork for sale and artist biography
Sophie Berger's recent work has been greatly influenced by her move to Devon and a new found love of the Dartmoor. The landscape and environment are a huge influence, both directly as well as subconsciously. It has allowed Sophie to develop a love for places and things that would otherwise have gone unnoticed. Colour and atmosphere, both of which change due to weather and s...easons are a very important consideration. Sophie often sketches in situ on the north moors and in Skaigh woods, taking in the mood of the sky, rolling hills and streams or concentrating on the intricate twisted branches and roots of the bracken. Her next stage is to recapture these sketches using oil paint when back at the studio in Kigbeare, thereby creating a strong connection between her work and the landscape. The changeable, moody landscapes awash with colour, horizons and the vast openness have inspired artist Sophie Berger to explore the feeling of being in this environment, so to describe these works as landscapes would be to miss the essence of the places they strive to capture. Sophie exhibits nationally and internationally and has sold paintings through galleries, private clients and artist consultancies. She is happy to work with clients on an individual basis for commissions.
