These colourful and vibrant collages have been made by the artist during lockdown. The cut-out words have been carefully chosen to evoke poignant messages during Covid-19. The bright colours harmonise with these positive words, resulting in encouraging and inspiring pieces. This chimes with Sophie's daily collage practice that allows her to develop an aesthetic that is personal, playful and practical. She enjoys the challenge of using whatever visual stimuli is available (magazines, newspapers, tickets…) to create an image that can pose visual or literal questions to the viewer.
