Sophie Morrish


Originally from Hampshire, Sophie Morrish moved from central London, where she studied at Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art, to mainland Scotland in 1996.

Working as a lecturer at Glasgow School of Art, Morrish developed her creative practice in what she refers to as her ‘Walden Years’, living in a caravan at the foot of the Campsie Fells. From here she moved to the heart of The Great Forest of Loch Ard in the Trossachs, where a life long fascination with the natural world continued to inform the progress of her work. In 2007 Morrish relocated to North Uist in the Outer Hebrides this was a deliberate move to inform her practice (broadly speaking, her work draws inspiration from the natural world, particularly the phenomenal experience of landscape and our human perception of ‘other’ animal life).

Morrish is a board member of ATLAS Arts on Skye and a member of ‘Land2’ environmental art research group, (University of Leeds), with more than twenty years experience teaching in places as diverse Glasgow School of Art, Central Academy of Fine Art, Beijing, China, H.M.Prison Brixton and M.S. University Vadodra, India.
