About

Come into my whimsical, watercolour world!

I'm based in beautiful Edinburgh with my husband Josh and our pet succulents. I have been passionate about illustration and art for...well, since forever, really!

In 2016, I finally got up the confidence to open a shop on Etsy. I wanted to have a purpose behind my artwork - I wanted to bring joy and smiles and emotions to people around the world, sharing my creativity with them. I chose the name Sophie Syzygy because the word syzygy means a gathering of multiple heavenly bodies, and I really liked the concept of how rare and special it is for many worlds to collide in this manner. It spoke to me, because that's how I feel about my artwork :)

My work is predominantly watercolour based - I love watercolour as a medium because it is very unpredictable and surprising to work with from an end result point of view. I come back to a piece and am always happily surprised about how it turned out. I also like it because it suits the whimsical, dream like quality that my drawing style tends to lean towards.

From a theming and inspiration point of view, I love fairytales and bohemian feels just as much as I love pop culture and modern randomness - these two threads will both feature heavily in my work.

As my style and product line grows and develops, I'm keen to do more custom orders - I'm only one person, so knowing the ideas and concepts that would be special to someone else is really exciting to me.

I'm always learning new skills - brush pen calligraphy, for example, and I hope to be able to expand my range with this in mind.

I can't wait to create beautiful things for you!

Love Sophie x

    Hello! I live in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, with my husband and our pet succulents. When I'm not working in digital communications, I love to illustrate using watercolours. I also love gin, red lipstick and yoga. It's lovely to meet you!
