As Sophie F. Stocker, she was born at Newmarket, Suffolk in 1952, daughter of Anthony W. Stocker, a farmer, and his wife Sheila Frances Carey, who married at Bristol in 1948. Sophie’s studied on a foundation course at Kennington City and Guilds School of Art in South London, where she acquired skills in a variety of painting mediums and continued her training at Kingston School of Art, where she completed a three-year B.A. degree in graphic design, covering illustration, photography, lithography and screen-printing. Following her studies, Sophie began working as a freelance artist in London, before moving to Suffolk in 1982. She married at Braintree, Essex in 1979, Charles Tyrwitt Colmer and paints under the name of Sophie Colmer-Stocker. She began to focus her work on still-life, developing a skill in painting trompe l'oeil, these intriguing creations can be viewed in homes across the country, where over the years she has been commissioned to paint anything from shelves displaying beautiful antiques to windows looking onto a garden. Sophie spent some three years living in France continuing to paint trompe l’oeil, portraits and still-life, but has now returned to Double Street, Framlingham, Suffolk. Her still-life paintings are on display at Carley's Yard in Framlingham, Suffolk.
