"I started Sophie and Company with the intention of getting really fabulous, unique, fresh and quality art into the hands of the growing number of people who, in this cookie cutter and massed produced world, have come to appreciate originality. There is no better way to individualize your personal spaces, be it at home or office, than by adding artwork. I wanted to create an understanding of what artwork brings into our lives; expression, reflection, individuality and connection.
And, I wanted to bring this artwork to people in a completely new and exciting way: to remove the old stereotypes and stigmas of art and galleries, and make the process of purchasing and collecting contemporary art fun, approachable and accessible ~ art without intimidation."
