Sophie Steengracht (1991) is currently living and working in The Netherlands.
Sophie studied graphic techniques at the Scuola Lorenzo de Medici in Florence. She then studied Visual Arts at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts in The Hague and graduated there in 2015.
The Italian education was primarily focused on technology. At the KABK she found a good balance between technical knowledge and the development of her own autonomous style.
She is currently working in her studio in a barn behind a farm. In this beautiful place surrounded by meadows and forest, she makes her colorful paintings and recently also metal sculptures in her father's welding workshop. She also photographs and makes murals.
