Samantha Sopwith, Sir Tommy Sopwith’s grand-daughter, is an exceptionally talented artist specialising in animal portraits. She will be showing in, appropriately, the Sopwith Gallery at Horsley Towers.
With a lifelong passion for animals and an innate sense of creativity it was natural for Sam to combine her two great loves. in particular over the last 20 years of her work Sam’s focus has largely been capturing four legged creatures in movement, working in a variety of mediums; from oil paint to pastel and charcoal to clay.
With a need to see first hand her subject matter in action in its raw form, Sam finds it essential to understand the character and the essence of the model as much as studying the physical characteristics of her subjects.
