Feature Creative : Sophie Perez

A wander through tree-lined bush tracks on the Mornington Peninsula provides a calm and a welcome caress to the soul, much like the paintings of local artist Sophie Perez. I came across Sophie’s work at one of our local art shows, Art Red Hill, last year. Her artworks reflect the essence of the Mornington Peninsula and the wider Australian landscapes, with golden and green hues, earthy browns and pops of fresh blues synonymous with the coastal region Sophie has recently made her home. In this feature we learn of Sophie’s long years of dedication to her painting practice and her insider info on other fabulous artists she has met on the Mornington Peninsula.

What’s On : July 2018

I’ll be the first to admit that in the depths of winter I am more than happy curled up on the couch, enjoying the warmth of the fire with a hot drink in hand. Venturing out in hostile weather can seem less than inviting so one could be forgiven for making like a bear and hibernating during July or escaping to a toasty northern holiday destination. Lucky for those of us still in Victoria, the Mornington Peninsula knows how to turn it on any time of the year, serving up some hearty events for the month of July.
