Tell us about yourself and a fun fact
Hiya, I’m Sofia Barton and I can speak 5 languages. This was handy when I was a wedding photographer.
What made you get into the world of artwork and creativity?
Always loved art since my childhood. I remember being super excited with my first pack of Crayola felt tips that my aunty gifted me. I always found there’s a magic to the worlds you can create and the colours you can evoke in drawings. This led to me drawing, painting, photographing through out my life. It’s so lovely and therapeutic seeing and creating art.
Where do you get your inspiration from when creating new artwork?
I love reading books and have found a lot of my inspiration comes from vintage designs. It’s strongly influenced by story books and folklore.
What has been your favourite project to work on?
I’ve had loads of fun working with Durham University’s Bishop Cosin’s Library as part of my residency. This has led to lots of lush illustrations showing hidden figures from history and a project on feminism to better highlight and promote women’s rights.
Small indie businesses shout out! Please name your fave three small indie businesses.
I really love Hello Dodo, R Place and Barter Books. My favourite things in life are wearing oodles of colour, eating loads of sweet things and reading books.
