Soraya French Distant Poppy fields 1 - mixed media - 18 x 18 in


Soraya is a contemporary artist, tutor and author. She combines a successful exhibiting career with writing books as well as articles for the UK’s leading art publication The Artist magazine and carrying out occasional experimental workshops both at home and abroad. The success of her art books commissioned by HarperCollins have brought her international recognition and following.

Soraya works in all painting media but is particularly known for her expressive and colourful mixed media paintings. Use of vibrant colours, light and expressive textures are prominent features of her work. The ambiguity and evocative quality in her paintings leaves something for the viewer’s imagination. She has been the recipient of a number of prestigious art awards in the last few years and her work is held in many private and public collections both at home and abroad.

A selection of her paintings and prints can be viewed at the studio by appointment and at open studio weekends.

Soraya is a director and former president of The Society of Women Artists and curates their annual exhibition at The Mall galleries in London.
