Unison Colour Associate Artist

Unison Colour welcomes Sophie Ploeg as an Associate Artist

Sophie Ploeg has been working with pastels since her teens. It is one of her favourite mediums, but she works with oils as well. Sophie paints realistic and atmospheric pieces and specialises in portraiture and still life. She has a love for painting textures, especially the textures of fabrics such as lace and silk. The colours of Unison fit into her work perfectly, providing subtle colour shifts, deep darks and subtle creams.

Sophie has exhibited her work at the Pastel Society, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the BP Portrait Award and many other places in the US and the UK. Her work has been published in the Pastel Journal, International Artist Magazine, and Artists and Illustrator’s Magazine to name a few. She has won the BP Travel Award at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Sophie loves to share her love for pastel, painting and art history and writes regularly on her popular blog. She studied art history (MA, PhD) and continues to fuse art history into her work. She also teaches painting courses in her online art school, where there are online courses and workshops on portraiture, pastel painting and much more.
