Welcome to my blog, I am Sophie Douglas, having lived in London since 2006, I have now made the move to the country, East Sussex to be precise. I am an artist, photographer and art teacher blogging about the world as I experience it and sharing what I find interesting. A selection of my work work is available from The Parkshot Gallery in Richmond, www.saatchionline.com/Sophiemayersart, or directly from me. Please contact me with any queries. Thanks for your time.
The Arts School will start running day courses in Drawing and Mark making and Reflective Practise. Come and spend the day on a beautiful farm in East Sussex. 60 acres of woods, fields and lakes. A delicious lunch is included, provided by Sam. So excited! A few spaces left for our intro day on July 8th and confirmed dates to follow!
Last year I tried to take a Photograph a day for a year.
I had been following some 365 day projects and tried to give it a go. It didn’t work…. I forgot, I was to busy, I got distracted etc. The best intentions of doing a fun project turned to stress of not completing something.
To resolve this I decided to keep going, posting when I can. And keep it is a piece of work in itself, a type of diary of places and things.
Today I had some time to edit a few images that will be coming up this week. Hope you choose to follow and enjoy!
This morning met and followed the lovely Elise at Florescence.
How it happened: Just over two years ago she made the mothers of the bride and groom flowers for my wedding. She did an amazing job and we kept in contact. I little while ago I asked her if I could follow her around and photograph her, and today it finally happened! Here is a little taste of some of the gorgeous images from the flower markets and her workshop.
