Award winning painter Sophia Perina-Miller was born in Russia in 1974 and now lives and works in Scotland. She exhibits her paintings at galleries and art fairs throughout the United Kingdom.
Perina-Miller currently works in watercolor and gel pen. I love her uninhibited use of bright color and love her eye for fine detail and design. She creates wonderful, vibrant work which is happily available in a variety of ways; as original art and in print and textile form.

What a joyous colourful selection of paintings Yvette - I love botanical paintings anyway, but Sophia has given them her own distinctive je ne sais quoi - thanks for the introduction, I shall now be watching out for her work.ReplyDelete
Isn't she wonderful? You're welcome, Rosemary, I'm glad I introduced her work to you. She lives in Scotland so she's more or less in your neck of the woods - well, northern most anyway. :)Delete
Thanks Yvette - they are delightful.ReplyDelete
You're welcome, Sergio. Glad you enjoyed them.Delete
I like Perina-Miller's work very much — I could see displaying a grouping of her watercolors against a bright pastel wall. I would guess that she incorporates Dr. Martin's Dyes for some of that vibrancy.
That's what I thought too, Mark. But I saw some pix of her working (at a workshop) and she was using regular watercolors. But perhaps they are some new and intense kind of colors. She also uses gel pen which I don't know anything about. (I think I'll check into that.) I like your idea of a grouping on a pastel wall - yes.Delete
Beautiful paintings, colors, detail.ReplyDelete
What a way to brighten up the day.
Glad you enjoyed them, Kathy.Delete
They're lovely. My favorite is the third from the top. I like the bold structure and the cobalt blue accents.ReplyDelete
I like that one too, Joan. Of course I'd be happy to own any of them. :)Delete
Beautiful, Yvette! Would make wonderful fabric designs as well. Would love to have a big comfy chair with one of those on the fabric!ReplyDelete
She does do fabric design, Peggy Ann. Wouldn't a chair covered in that overall red print (second from the top) be wonderful?Delete
These fabrics are wonderful, love them, what an artist.'Where are you thinking of moving? I built a REAL handicap home. The contractors here are from hunger. Renee said Maine is so sad, Not much to offer.ReplyDelete
She wants to move too.
