The Names of the Hare


Sokie Woodhouse is a Fylde based artist who specialises in painting large murals. After graduating with a degree in the History of Modern Art, Design and Film, she set up her own business undertaking commissions for clients as diverse as the Sea Life Centre in Blackpool and North West Water, and designing and theming interiors across Europe.

Recently, Sokie has begun painting on canvasses and experimenting with portraiture. This has culminated in her latest collection of works: 'The Names of the Hare'.

'The Names of the Hare', is a collection of images of hares painted onto large canvases. Sokie became fascinated with the animals when she remembered reading a poem translated from Middle English by Seamus Heaney in which the hare is addressed repeatedly with many different names.

Sokie will be exhibiting 'The Names of the Hare' in our River House facility for one weekend only. We invite you to come along and see these impressive paintings and meet the artist.
