About this artist:
Sophie Connell was born in New Brunswick and moved to Edmonton in 1982. She has been coming to the Nina Haggerty Center for the Arts for nearly ten years. Sophie works in multiple studios such as paint, drawing, sculpture, and printmaking. Sophie’s favourite colour is red and she often draws inspiration from mythical creatures such as mermaids, unicorns and dragons. She also likes to make portraits of people and animals. Sophie is very proud of the work that she has on display at the Nina and enjoys sitting next to her friend, Carla, who is her favourite artist. Making and creating art gives Sophie peace within – she has lots of love to share, with her biggest inspiration coming from the heart.
