ABOUT SOPHIE HONESS

Sophie Honess is a Gomeroi Yinarr artist based in Tamworth, New South Wales. She has been creating textile art professionally for the past five years. Her works respond to her immediate environment, finding and exploring hidden beauty on Gomeroi country through colour and texture. Sophie has been included in a number of group exhibitions and has held two solo exhibitions at Weswal Gallery, Tamworth, in 2023 and 2021. She has been selected to participate in this year’s 5th Tamworth Textile Triennial (2023) and is also a part of the weaving group Yinarr Maramali, a Gomeroi women cultural weaving collective. You can see Sophie’s work on display now in My Country on Level 3 of the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia.
