Sophie Seeger

Sophie Seeger runs Seeger By Design, a creative consultancy for Interior Design, Decorating, Property Styling, Colour Consulting and Art Sourcing.

Sophie was immersed in art and design from a very young age, having “caught the bug” from her grandmother, a sculptor, and both art-loving parents.

She studied History of Art, Colour & Design, Interior Design and Journalism; and her career to date has successfully married her passion for art, design and writing.

While running a contemporary art and design gallery, Sophie developed a commission base for her paintings and also discovered her joy for commercial design development, identifying sustainable opportunities and incomes for artists and designers.

This led to two Indigenous rug and textile ranges with licensed deals with clients including DFAT, Qantas and public libraries. Sophie has a licensing deal for her own abstract art and has works in private collections throughout Australia, in South Africa, the US, UK, Denmark and Singapore.

Sophie has worked as an art and design mentor; as guest curator; and she continues to work on residential and boutique retail Interior Design projects.

She is a weekly contributor for Houzz and a member of the Design Institute.

This wonderfully fun course really opened my creative side. I now see design elements wherever I go that I would have never even noticed before. It has helped me blend my drafting, technical side with the creative side that I had but wasn't using to its potential.
