Sophie Capron was born in Northampton but the family moved to Cornwall when she was very young. After travels in Australia, she became a student at Winchester School of Art. During this time she spent three months in Japan. Subsequently she visited Central and Latin America. Returning to Cornwall in 2010, Capron settled down to teach at at the Roseland Academy, and to pursue her artistic career by taking studio space at the Old Bakery Studios in Truro.
Her work explores textures through multimedia. She is intrigued by the way that surfaces change and decay over time, concealing and revealing memories and stories. Capron's work has been shown in Europe, Japan and the USA. In 2017 she participated in the International Biennale in France.
