Sophie Elinor Martin (b.1986)
Switching to a full time career as an artist in 2013 – Sophie, or ‘SEM’ as she often calls herself, got a name for herself by her unique portrayals of animals.
Today her fascination has broadened over the intricacies of the animal ecosystem in particular towards the fast declining bee. Her work now challenges the use of traditional and contemporary methods through spray paint, oil and graphite on ply.
Sophie has sold artwork both internationally and in the UK and has recently made the final selection for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year 2015 in London.
