Sophie Thompson graduated from Exeter College of Art and Design (Plymouth University) in 1992. She creates these marvellous animals from recycled materials. For example scythes can become birds tails, chains – shaggy coats for goats and hedge cutters – crocodile teeth. She is particularly interested in capturing movement.
Sophie mainly works to commission but does exhibit throughout the region. Past commissions range from a life size rearing horse, domestic and exotic creatures and mythical beasts.
