I spoke to Artist and Business woman Salpi Markarian about her creative process, where she finds inspiration and how she finds balancing her businesses with art and motherhood. Salpi's art is a reflection of her life's experiences. With an eye for design and interiors, Salpi chooses her colour palettes based on what she feels a particular room needs; hoping her art will form rich connections with others and bring a powerful meaning to people's homes.
Sophie Derrick pushes the boundaries of traditional figurative art by becoming the canvas of her own self-portraits. Sophie applies layers of paint as a form of transcendence from herself; becoming something ‘other’ – free from societal labels and roles. Using a variety of mediums such as painting, photography and installation, she pushes herself out to explore a ‘self-less’ state.
