soph&son artworks celebrate the perfect imperfection of life.
soph&son original artworks, fine art prints, and homewares provide the perfect enhancement for new, curated spaces, livening up places familiar, or anyone needing an uplifting, high quality and affordable gift.
soph&son is an Australian micro-business, with green intentions, focussed on making and dispatching all products with the smallest carbon footprint possible.
soph&son was established in 2007 and is now located in Templestowe (Wurrudjeri Country) part of Melbourne's outer leafy eastern fringe.
With an artistic voice accented by my Hellenic heritage, I am self-taught and self-directed.
Happily rejecting the concept of perfection has liberated my creative process and most importantly invited a celebration of that which is evolving: that which lives.
Life is a quality I always seek to capture in my artwork.
My practice now encompasses painting, drawing, collage, digital design and ceramics (hand building). I work from a home studio and one of my greatest achievements has been learning to adapt my endeavours to accommodate my physical limitations resulting from a spinal injury, bone degeneration and chronic pain.
While I started soph&son when I was a single parent with a newborn and an acquired disability, &son is now a teenager.
Our lives at home are enriched immeasurably by our two pups, a guinea pig and my mum.
