Carolyn Weltman (known as Sophi to friends) is a New York City artist, as well as one of my (Jane's) best friends in the world. Over twenty years ago, she arrived in New York from Wales and never looked back. Over five years ago she abandoned her sensible career to follow her childhood dream of being an artist.
In that short time, she's been awarded the 2002 Best Artist at The Erotic Awards in London, had several commissioned illustrations in Penthouse Magazine and had work auctioned several times at Sotheby's.
Her first solo show was held in December of 2003 at Art at Large, she is also consistently one of the most popular artists at the annual Tom of Finland erotic art show.
Sophi's work is constantly changing and growing. In the beginnings there were self-portraits, then live models, and most recently one of my favorite pieces, 'Blue Moon' which was born solely from Sophi's imagination without a model to work with. Also, the medium itself is morphing over time, as she expands into more original paintings.
All of the images you see here are available as limited edition giclee prints, signed and numbered by the artist. Email the artist for prices and availability. Some are also available as non-limited edition prints as well.
I truly hope you enjoy her work as I do, if you're in New York consider stopping by Art at Large to see her fabulous work in person as the web can never quite do it justice. Meanwhile, you can visit her website for more information.
