Sofie Skapski

For Sofie the process of painting is always an adventure. There is an amazing point where the struggle between paint, brush, and canvas is taken over by a sort of magic and the work in progress becomes a living thing. While caught in that flow, thought and time are irrelevant colour and form become everything. Subjects close to her heart include trees, wild and garden flowers, and people caught in moments of normal, daily life.

Sofie Skapski received her art training at Capilano College, Douglas College, and the Instituto de Belles Artes in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Sofie has lived in the Comox Valley since 2004 and currently paints out of her studio space at Art Alchemy on 10th Street in Courtenay. Sofie uses water mixable oils and paints on natural linen and canvas. She displays her work locally at South Hollow Gallery and the Comox Valley Art Gallery Gift Shop, both in Courtenay, and various local group shows throughout the year.
