Sophie completed her Foundation course at Camberwell School of Art in 2006, and her degree in Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Brighton in 2009. Two works from her degree show were selected for inclusion in the Aldrich Collection.
Since graduation her work has been included in a number of group exhibitions including Originals 10 at the Mall Galleries. Her work has also been included at many major London fairs including the 20/21 British Art Fair and the London Original Print Fair with The Fine Art Partnership.
As the daughter of Peter Layton, one of Europe’s pre-eminent glass blowers famous for his vibrant and intense colourful glass works, it is no surprise that Sophie’s artworks are also extraordinary in the way they capture colour and the fluidity and ephemeral qualities of light.
