Glasgow based artist Sophie Grindlay creates vibrant collages and sculptures of the chaos found in the details of her life. Exhibited internationally & awarded the Stanley Picker prize, Sophie is emerging as an artist and a mother. Everyday objects, recycled materials & humour decipher her ongoing struggles with identity, sanity, and raising a small feisty female.
