Sophia Frame is an upcoming artist born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. Sophia has been drawn to art since she was just a toddler, and from that young age she scribbled and drew on just about any surface she could find. Filling up sketchbook after sketchbook all through her childhood, she decided to pick up a paintbrush after discovering her father's old oil paints at the age of thirteen. Since then, she has been obsessed with expressing herself through painting and has been selling work since she was fourteen. Currently working as a full-time artist, Sophia is studying art and pursuing a degree in Fine Arts, and her dream is to follow in the footsteps of her grandfather Robert Frame, who was a well-known artist and art professor in Southern California. Inspired by the vivid still lives and landscapes of her Grandfather, as well as abstract works from artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud, de Kooning, and many other artists, Sophia creates varying work that consists of still lives, abstracts, landscapes, and portraits with a keen sense of color, light, and shadow, often with a more painterly style of brushwork.
Though Sophia is a young artist, she certainly has developed a sense of style and skill and has been studying the work of artists before her for years. She has taken many art classes, but is mainly self-taught and has been told she has an intuitive sense of color and skill for her age. She started out with an interest in drawing figures and faces from a young age, and early on her paintings focused on accurately portraying the human face and form, with a passion for capturing human emotion. Sophia is now straying away from realism and is diving into abstract expressionism, and though she has yet to settle on one specific style or subject, she prefers her current art to her older work. She is most interested in creating work that is loose and expressive, using colors and thick paint that capture moods that transport the viewer into a different world.
