Sophie May is a Gamilaraay artist living on Bundjalung Country. She works with ceramic sculpture and mixed media painting, as well as photography and textiles. Sophie is in her third year of a Bachelor of Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art at Queensland College of Art (QCA) in SouthBank. She explores expressionism using both painting and sculpture making. Her work is loose, colourful and expressive, and is inspired by nature, emotions and her mixed cultural background. Sophie plays in the space outside of the box, beyond the lines. Having a passion for passing on cultural knowledge and skills, Sophie works with adults and children, running art-based workshops. She is passionate about the benefits art has on our mental well being, and believes it can be used as a powerful tool.
