Sophie Gilbart-Denham was classically trained to paint and draw in Italy using techniques passed down from the Old Masters. Further years were spent painting and developing her style in New York.

She currently works from her studio in London specialising in portraits of people and animals and has had exhibitions ranging from camel racing in Oman to ceremonial duties at The Royal Mews.

She has painted a wide variety of portraits from bishops and actors to the Lord Mayor of London and The MET Police Commissioner Lord Bernard Hogan Howe.

Sophie has been surrounded by horses throughout her life (her Father was in the Household Cavalry and later The Crown Equerry to H.M. The Queen), and has naturally eased into painting equestrian subjects. Including Sakhee (Shadwell Stud), Storming Home and now Frankel.
