About

Hi I'm Sula, an artist based in the English Lake District. I create fictional worlds, flora and fauna that explore the beautifully absurd nature of being alive. I like to work across different media and techniques, my favourite being sculpture, drawing and digital imagery. 

Living in the Lakes has a BIG influence on my work, it's a wonderful place for an imagination to thrive! I grew up messy and muddy, always knee deep in puddles, cataloging beasties, giving them names and fictional lifestyles and spending far too long considering what their thoughts about being alive might be. I've maintained the habit of assigning personalities to things throughout my life, it remains my most favourite thing to do. 

Life's been good to me so far. I've exhibited and taught internationally over the last 12 years, sometimes it's been super scary, but ultimately I'm having a very nice time here on earth! Here are some of my favourite projects:
