Artist's CV on LondonArt:
Sophie Gartell
A freelance Illustrator and Graphic Artist for ten years, Sophie Gartell first studied fine art at Camberwell before graduating with a 2:1 in Illustration from Brighton University in 2001. Sophie's diverse working methods using a wide range of media has made her work popular with a rapidly increasing client base both in Europe and in the United States and Canada. She has designed card and wrap ranges for Roger LaBorde and Woodmansterne; her designs have been lisensed for Christmas decorations Stateside; she has been an editorial Illustrator for the Telegraph Magazine and The Evening Standard as well as designing book covers and painting ceramics ranges in London.

An up-and-coming artist with a quirky yet elegant style, Sophie has exhibited extensively throughout London and the South-East, most recently at the prestigious Air Gallery in the heart of Mayfair. Sophie's highly collectable pieces are strongly influenced by the darker side of fairy-tale with tenderly-applied graphics offset with splashes of neon and botanical motif. A carefully controlled pastel palette is complimented by her love of bold block colour; a characteristic along with strong portraiture work which Sophie is fast becomming recognised for.

Using a combination of drawing, painting, stencilling and print, Sophie creates highly decorative pieces whilst maintaining a sharp finespun quality throughout. A storyteller at heart, Sophie is especially passionate about using pencil and paper, and her artwork is, by turn, original, colourful, delicate, striking and highly personal. Sophie is available for commissions.
