About me

Sophia Elise is an Auckland based, self-taught artist. She was actively involved in the art community as a founding member and Manager of the New Zealand Art Guild (for 8years), alumni of the ART Venture Programme, ART Generator Programme and as a trustee member of Mairangi Art Centre.

Since 2004, Sophia has been selected as a finalist in several NZ Art Awards and involved in numerous exhibitions throughout NZ. She has exhibited in London and Italy and also had her artwork selected to be created into original bangles by American jewellery company, Bajidoo Bangles.

Sophia has two very distinct styles of art. She is an extremely tactile person and this love of texture is reflected in her heavily textured, minimalist, abstract style which often incorporates resin. Her other distinctive style is created entirely with hand painted dots and inspired by the rich Maori culture.

When Sophia creates she believes it's important to "Make it Memorable". She achieves this by drawing inspiration from her emotions and forging it with her environment and experiences. By doing this she encourages the viewer to connect on a deeper level and explore places within themselves. Sophia creates unique, original art which is a window into her soul.

'If my art can reach into the soul of another and emotionally and spiritually touch that person, then it's all worthwhile.'
