Sophie comes from an art background, with a first class honours degree at London Arts University where she studied Special Effects prosthetics for film and T.V. She then went on to work for 8 years, as a sculptor making realistic looking, bespoke prosthetics for amputees at one of the leading prosthetic providers. She worked in all areas sculpting fingers, toes, partial feet , partial hands, bespoke liners and leg and arm covers for amputees. In her spare time she made more experimental art work in this medium , before setting up her own studio
Sophie now works as a specialist consultant and can work alongside your prosthetist. As well as producing realistic looking artificial limbs, she uses imaginative ideas to create alternative effects with direct input from the client. She can interpret your ideas and create a unique design that will reflect your interests and personality.
Sophie often collaborates with other artists with different skill sets; such as graphics, laser cutting, metalworks, plastics and woodwork. This allows for many possibilities and can generate interesting results.
