Streetstyle: Sophie Moore

Sophie Moore is a student and painter studying art history at UCLA. I think it’s safe to say that she’s killing it with that hat.

What is your profession?

I’m an art history student and a painter.

Which artists do you admire in particular at this moment?

I’ve always been drawn to Picasso, mostly his early sketches and drawings, more so than his paintings.

How did you start painting?

My parents are both artists, and I kind of have a kooky imagination. A lot of my paintings are of obscure figures.

Do you usually have something in mind when you begin painting?

Often [a painting] begins with something I imagine, which can be frustrating as a painter. In my head it’s a painting that’s done, and then I start to do it and I can’t.

If you had a life philosophy, what would it be?

I don’t live by philosophy, really.
