Sophie Bracewell


A light filled studio by the water in Sausalito, California (the dock where Otis Redding is said to have written “Sittin' on the dock of the bay” is steps away from her studio door!)


Primarily acrylics and watercolor, occasionally graphite, charcoal, and oil pastel


Sophie was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and earned a BFA in Studio Art from The University of Georgia. She moved to San Francisco after graduation where she worked in an art gallery for about a year before spending a decade in tech. The birth of her daughter in 2022 inspired a long anticipated career shift back to creative work. She currently resides in Marin County with her husband, daughter, and dog. Sophie draws her inspiration primarily from the natural world. The access to nature and stunning landscapes are her favorite part about living in Northern California. She also draws inspiration from travel, textiles, interiors, and watching her daughter explore the world. She hopes to bring the joy of these experiences into your home with each one of her paintings.
