Colourful artwork & colourful language tell Sophie's story of motherhood and mentalhealth.

 

Glasgow based artist Sophie Grindlay creates vibrant paper 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. Recycled materials & humour decipher her ongoing struggles with identity, sanity, and raising wee ones.
