Sophia McCrocklin, whose work has been hailed by the Washington Post as "brilliant," is an accomplished collage artist who currently resides in Washington, DC where she pursues her art. She was born in New York City, but it was her up bringing in the Kentucky Appalachian foothills and rural countryside, which inspires her work to this day.
Her collages are available at Studio Gallery in Washington, D.C.
One of her exhibitions was described in a review in the Georgetowner as "...something of a song in paint...nothing if not energized by color. They are indeed 'Colors of Optimism,' musically hopeful."
Sophia McCrocklin studied studio art at Smith College and textiles at Penland School of Crafts. She is also a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Law and practiced environmental law for several years in both the public and private sector. These unique talents earned McCrocklin the honor of a national fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and, the Award for Artistic Excellence, from the Kentucky Department of the Arts.
Her collages, called, "inventive" by The Washington Times, have been shown through Spectrum Gallery in Washington, DC and are represented in private and corporate collections across the United States and Europe. McCrocklin's work has also been featured in The Washington Post, Washington Times, The Georgetowner, Where Magazine, Galleries Magazine, and The Northwest Current.
