Sophie is an artist, curator and organiser based in Leeds. She is interested in world-building, ecology, science fiction and forged histories. Her recent works have created narratives about imagined worlds. Often using drawing as a way to begin a project, she is currently making drawings of killer plants, inspired by John Wyndham’s Day of the Triffids. Sophie co-founded the artist-led organisation Freehold Projects. Based in Leeds city centre, Freehold Projects aimed to bridge the gap between education and larger institutions in Yorkshire. It also offered a space for collaboration and exhibition-making for the 10 artists who ran it. Sophie works as an invigilator, technician, receptionist and learning facilitator across multiple
galleries in Yorkshire.
