Sophie Velzian works from a studio in Mawnan Smith, near the Helford River. A seascape painter in oils, she also creates art panels in fused glass, using the medium to evoke light and water.

She graduated from the Slade School of Art in 1994 with a First Class degree in Fine Art. After graduating her creativity was channelled into web design, and she followed a career in technology for many years. She moved to Cornwall in 2020.

In 2023 she joined Prime Women Artists, a supportive and creative network for women artists of all disciplines in Cornwall.
