Mark Devereux Projects are delighted to announce Sophie Lee will be joining our roster of represented artists.
Sophie Lee has been selected from Mark Devereux Projects’s current StudioBook artist development programme.
“Sophie is an exciting young artist that I first saw the work of during her degree show in 2010. Since then she has been working hard to develop her career in Manchester and Internationally. With help from Arts Council England funding for StudioBook, we are delighted to start working with Sophie to generate projects and plans over the next couple of months. We then look forward to implementing these over the following months and years as we work with her to help produce and showcase new work.” [Mark Devereux]

The opportunity has come at a great time for me and my practice and I really look forward to working with Mark and Liz in making some exciting and ambitious new work.” [Sophie Lee]
