A bit about me
Hi, I'm Sophie.
Teacher, Coach & Artist.
I’ve been painting on and off since I was old enough to hold a paintbrush and loved spending time in my mothers art studio as I was growing up.
Being from a family of teachers it wasn’t long before I too trained and went onto teach art at the Brighton Steiner School on the south coast of England. But I guess you could say I was more suited to entrepreneurship and some eight years on I really stepped into my flow when I left my teaching and started up my own Art Business for the first time.
Following my mission to empower other artists to succeed in business, I also trained as a business coach and grew an award-winning coaching practice; which I ended up taking on online when I left the UK and did the ‘digital nomad’ thing travelling in Asia and finally landing in Perth Australia.
Being able to design and create my own business, based around what’s important to me and how I want to live my life is imperative. Gone are the days of being in a job I didn’t like, feeling constricted and working to someone else’s timetable. Hello to flexibility and freedom.
Now I paint when I like, weave when I like (yes that’s a new thing!) and love nothing better than spending time with our Art Business Academy members and supporting them to grow their own successful Art Businesses.I’m lucky enough to have my eldest daughter Vicky work alongside me and together we get to have fun as we plan out all our own business stuff.
When I’m not working ‘in’ or ‘on’ my own Art Business, I love to travel, walk in nature, explore new places, go to the ocean, watch movies, eat raw chocolate, drink great coffee and eat healthy food.
I’m grateful each and every day. X
