Sanctuary

Sophie’s work space is adorned with past work, Japanese packaging and house plants.

When documenting creatives, it’s always fascinating to see the inner workings of what makes them stand out as individuals.

Creature Comforts

Despite working with traditional methods, Sophie will often illustrate commissions digitally so she can open up further creative possibilities.

One of the added benefits of this is being able to work remotely or from her sofa joined by her cat “Lady”.

E-Commerce

A number of Sophie’s pieces are available online via her Esty Shop and listings on Made.com

Whilst sipping on a fresh pot of coffee, we decided to make portraits of her work as potential shop imagery.

Necessary Evil

In an exercise of being more authentic and confident, Sophie requested we show more of her process.

Specifically, one she calls “Drawing Ugly”.

These sketches are used to develop ideas and help breathe clarity into her final pieces.

Window Light

Whilst artificial lighting can often produce feasible results, natural light will always be favoured for its subtle nuances.

These portraits are a classic example of window light at its best, helped by Sophie’s choice of dark painted walls as a backdrop.
