Sophie Strong is a British contemporary artist who paints using embroidery. Her images depict figures in vulnerable and fragile situations. The themes are often emotionally charged events and extreme circumstances.

My work is based on the vulnerability of human life. They incorporate found images of individuals from Syria, Nepal and India referencing countries in conflict and countries with tragic natural disasters. With existing images Sophie redraws elements of the figures, often combining several images and alters and edits the final composition and colours. From these drawings Sophie freehand embroiders the final compositions and paints additional colours. It a long process of many different techniques.

The final results consists of floating figures, powerful portraits that record specific significant events.
