About The Artwork

DNA – Professor Sir Alec Jeffrey's who invented DNA fingerprinting at the University of Leicester on the 10th September 1984. I painted a distant DNA strand behind him as he humbly talks about DNA fingerprinting origins. This is to portray an unseen and yet to be noticed future for this world changing technology. He and his teams knowledge have enabled so many criminals (and innocent) to be justifiably sentenced through his invented DNA fingerprinting and the list of DNA usage is endless. Mother Nature has planned for our genetic evolution until this point. Perhaps in generations to come gene therapy could be a future in which a group of privileged people become stronger, smarter and more beautiful than the rest or perhaps we can be trusted to use this knowledge for the greater good.

Sophie joined Saatchi Art in May 2019, specialising in portraits with a twist and animal paintings with a twirl. The swirly brush strokes make it easy to spot a Sophie Huddlestone painting, the majority of collectors being from the U.S. and U.K. Sophie is based in Leicestershire and fills her art studio with beach theme items to encourage a carefree holiday mood while painting. The blue tinted glasses that Sophie wears are for Irlen Syndrome which could be the quirk that encourages the happy vibes in the colour combinations. Texture and patterns inspire Sophie, with an added mischievous streak when it comes to watercolours and an unusual method of combining oil paints with watercolours.
