Seattle based artist, Sophie Gao has been a creative since her grandmother first introduced her to painting at age 5. She currently pursues a career in architecture but has always made time to work in her favorite artistic outlet, painting. She was originally inspired to create floral pieces when she observed the works of Georgia O'Keeffe, at age 15. At the time her primary medium of choice was oils. Since then, her technique and style has evolved to experiment with textures and the tactility of both oil and acrylic paints but the subject of the majority of her painting has stayed consistent.
This installation will mark her first showcase. She’s very excited to share her work with you. Thanks for taking a moment to explore the paintings. Hope you enjoy!
