Hello! I'm Sophie and I'm a freelance illustrator based in Greater Manchester, UK. I create all my artwork from my colourful home studio. I graduated from UCLAN with a 2:1 in Illustration back in 2014. Since then I've had the pleasure of working with some wonderful clients, such as Walker Books, The Guardian, Arts Council England, The Skinny, Pippy Eats, Sketch Appeal and more.
I also create my own paper products and accessories. I've traded at a lot of print fairs and markets around the country and work with several stockists. I love meeting my customers and the thought of people having my artwork in their homes fills me with joy!
I sell a range of vibrant risograph prints, greeting cards, zines, pins, clay jewellery and more. I design everything myself, using a mixture of traditional materials and digital methods. I particularly love using gouache paint and ink. My style is very loose, charming and whimsical. I find inspiration from the animal kingdom and aim to raise awareness of under appreciated species. I also draw a lot illustrations that are influenced by folklore, nature, travel, popular culture and people. I try to reflect my own personality and interests in my work, hoping that it will resonate with others.
