SOPHIE TREPPENDAHL

Sophie grew up in St. Francisville, Louisiana

and currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.

Sophie's work is inspired by the people and places in her life. For Sophie Treppendahl, 2019 has been a year of transition. The artist relocated her home and her studio, she traveled for pleasure and was an artist in resident in three states. Throughout the year of travel, Treppendahl did what she always does; she painted. Treppendahl makes the kind of lush paintings that oil paint was made for -generous strokes of buttery paint saturated with color and sensuously applied. She is a young painter who approaches her work with confident exuberance.

Art residencies serve an important role in Sophie's practice. Recent residencies include 100 W Corsicana in Corsicana, Texas (2019), The Wassaic Project in Wassaic, New York (2019) and The Provincial in Onekama, Michigan (2019).
