About the Series

Sophie's most recent series of portraits, DONTLIFTUPDONTLOOKDOWN - in which she uses blind contouring, the technique of not lifting the pen or looking at the canvas to draw her subjects - premiered in September 2015 during the Santa Barbara art walk at Ca'Dario Gallery, and has since had five solo, semi-solo, and group exhibitions. She has been profiled in Los Angeles MagazineThe Huffington PostFlaunt Magazine, Crixeo MagazineCrave Online,  ArteFuse, and Conde Nast’s The Scene. Works from this series have been sold into private collections and commercial properties around the worldand have been auctioned off at UCLA’s 2018 IoES (Institute of the Environment and Sustainability) Gala and at Help Refugees in 2017. Help Refugees was launched in partnership with artist Ai WeiWei, Paddle8, and The Cob Gallery in London, where Sophie was one of 27 artists alongside Harland Miller, Jake and Dinos Chapman, and Cecily Brown who donated works.
