Sophie Walbeoffe

Painting with Both Hands

With an Introduction by Sophie Walbeoffe
British-born artist Sophie Walbeoffe is an established travel painter who has traveled or lived in such diverse locations as Dubai, Canada, Syria, Jordan, India, Spain, France, and Israel. For the last twenty-five years she has called Kenya home. Throughout the course of her career, the subjects of her paintings have included Jimmy John, Wilfred Thesiger, the Emir of Sharja on his deathbed, as well as many nomadic peoples.
Capturing the adventurous spirit of Walbeoffe’s work, this book presents images and anecdotes from her sojourns across four continents. From her first paintings as a teenager, through art school and her development of the method of painting with both hands, the book presents her long career. She discusses what it is like to paint on site in deserts surrounded by camels and other exotic beasts; to rear two young children in the African bush, and to experience the vibrancy of Europe, the color of India, and the history of Jerusalem. With an introduction by Edward Lucie-Smith, it is a book certain to appeal to both art and travel lovers.
