Sophie Dare is an established artist in the Southeast, with decades of creative projects that reveal her eye for capturing nature and our surroundings in a unique and contemporary way. After growing up in the North Carolina foothills, she has lived in Florida for over 30 years, and shares the love of mountain to coastline in her artwork.

After years of mastering largescale murals across North East Florida Coast in homes and Street Art, she has since transitioned to oil painting in 2023, while teaching classes locally in acrylics and watercolor. 

A passionate painter, instructor and now Yia Yia, she loves to incorporate her travels with reference gathering and plein air painting the moments. For Sophie, art had such a meaningful place in her own life and healing, especially after the loss of her oldest son. 

Her ultimate purpose is to encourage the viewer to personally seek the healing benefits of nature and their Creator themselves.

We are all on a JOURNEY, and I have found that ART can help define our story - whether it is our memories, our JOYS or our dreams for the future. It offers a visual guide and gives us clarity in defining us as an individual, family and community member.

Sophie’s work is known for its peaceful color palette and quiet everyday moments - evoking a pause of healing and calmness to the viewer. From smooth misty sunrises to palette knife texture and movement, her work reminds us of the beauty that is evident all around, when we seek it.

I’m in love with this painting! The Farmhouse project holds a special place in my Hubs heart so I asked Sophie to capture this beautiful property. He was totally surprised & blown away with his gift! She is incredibly talented, check out her work on her IG @sophie.dare.designs
"Your artwork makes me smile!" 
 "Every single series speaks to my heart in different ways and I still cannot choose a favorite! Your talent is such a gift! I love your heartfelt art."
"Thank you for sharing your gift. I was particularly touched by you taking the time and effort to talk with the young ladies at the summer behavior camp. You encouraged them not only to express themselves through art yet you showed them what that can look like for each of them."
 "I approached Sophia wanting a picture of our children for our 17th anniversary. When the final painting was complete I was so impressed. I have had many people contact me about Sophia's work once they saw my family painting. I can not wait to commission her to paint us a new painting." 
 “Sophie did a custom mermaid piece of my family. Never having met us, going off the questions she asked, she created the most beautiful piece of stunning art I own. Looking at it you would think she spends every waking hr with us. She perfectly described our family and we can’t wait to have her create more masterpieces for our home.” 
 “After being referred by a friend, I asked Sophie to paint a scene on glass for me. She listened, did the research and the finished product exceeded all expectations. She is very talented and easy to work with. I would definitely go back to her for future projects.“
