Sophie Manns
Bamburgh Beach, Northumberland


Bamburgh, once known as Bebbanburgh, was the capital of the kingdom of Northumbria in Anglo-Saxon Britain. Occupied by Kings from Ida the Flamebearer to King Aethelfrith. Bamburgh castle is still the largest inhabited castle in the country, occupied by the Armstrong family since 1894. With the famous castle looming over it, the beach has become one of the most well-known beaches in Northumberland. I painted this during my final year at university. I used oil paints to depict the dark, moody landscape and to capture my emotions within the landscape.


Sophie Manns

We are delighted to welcome Sophie Manns to the Wallington Gallery, a talented young artist who describes her work as follows;

I am a local artist, who recently graduated in fine art from Leeds Arts University. Inspired by the dramatic Northumberland landscapes, I strive to capture the power, awe and wonder of the countryside and coastline through painting. I am heavily influenced by JMW Turner and the Sublime. I use oil and acrylic paint to create realism/abstract contemporary landscape paintings.

Exhibitions: Fronteer Open exhibition, Sheffield, December 2021.
