Ingrid Sofrin - painter

I moved to Cornwall from Somerset in 2010 after a career in provincial journalism.

The inspiring scenery, along with a very artistic environment encouraged me to realise my dream and take up painting.

I love to paint the sea in all it's moods, and have particularly enjoyed painting scenes of Porthleven, just a few miles from my home in Rinsey.

I'm also a keen still live painter, often working on a small scale to capture the gleam on shiny fruit or light sparkling on glass.

I take part in Open Studios every year, and exhibit regularly at the Lifeboat studio in Porthleven.
