Sophie Thomas is a contemporary artist from the vibrant seaside town of Leigh-on-Sea.

Working with acrylics on canvas she paints brightly coloured, expressive abstracts from her home studio. Her compositions are inspired by her love of the coast, and her colour palette is influenced by living in an English seaside resort: bright sunny turquoises and yellows and muted winter greys and blues.

Sophie lives with her two young children, her husband and her two ginger cats.
