This was a valentines present for my boyfriend and it was absolutely perfect. The picture was beautiful, arrived unbelievably quickly and was such a good likeness of the photo! Thank you so much!

About

Painter of homes, gardens and maps, dreamer of dreams and drinker of tea ;)

Originally from Wales, Sophia draws upon a love of nature and travel to create her highly detailed whimsical illustrations.

After completing her degree in Swansea 2010, Sophia wanted to take a 'step-back' from the commercial world of contemporary illustration and the pressures of the art world. She settled on pursuing her dreams and set off to work and travel her way across Australia, New Zealand and SE Asia for 2.5 years.

The people she met, volunteer work and many hours wildlife watching influenced her greatly and re-ignited her passion for art- thus was born a 'style' of working, a new love for watercolours and a place within the art world.
Nowadays, still borderline nomadic, Sophia lives happily with her Earthbag-building partner. She is self-employed and spends a lot of time painting home, garden and wedding portrait commissions and is very excited about recently being accepted into the ABNA (Association of British Naiive Artists)

Life is very much a journey! xXx

    Hello and thanks for taking the time to look around my store. If you are reading this then you obviously would like to know more about me! Well, I am Sophia, I am the illustrator, printer, accountant, web designer and more! I have always wanted to be an artist, I studied illustration in Swansea and graduated in 2009. I took around 3 years out to travel and have never really stopped. I take my inspiration from travel and nature and this is where my love for map-making was born. I love the research and discovering new places.
