Born in 1970, Sophie Tyrrell lives and works in Manchester, England. She studied Fine Art in Liverpool before completing a degree in Theatre Design.

The focus of her practice is painting; creating striking work that can be breath taking. Landscape and the figure are significant elements but are only partially apparent within the abstracted whole. An overwhelming interest in narrative provides a core structure for bold drawing and expressive painting.

She works at her studio in Artwork Atelier, with print work produced at the Hot Bed Press in Salford.
