Sophie Howard is an artist who makes expressive figurative sculpture. She has thirty years of teaching experience most recently at Bristol's Royal West of England Academy.
Sophie makes evocative sculpture in her central Bristol studio. She collaborates with others - mould makers, casters and other artists to realise her designs and commissions.
Her design experience includes making architectural details and props for TV, and for companies in the garden ornament industry, for whom she has made Buddhas, birdbaths, owls and obelisks amongst other things.
Seeking to find her own voice she makes collections of pieces exploring themes including motion and stillness, the body, city life and animals.
