Sophie Rawlingson is a self-taught illustrator based in London, UK. Her work centres around drawing portraits, plants and flowers, and various objects that seemingly float on the page. She is inspired by the visual culture she lives in and how people are all too eager to demonstrate to the world who they are, what they own, and why their relationship with a possession can be meaningful. This wonderful every day she tries to capture is often pieced together with elements of fantasy and magic. She is predominantly a digital illustrator but started using embroidery and rug tufting as well in 2019. To put something into embroidery is to seal it in time - a this-is-what-life-was-like way of marking her present, to look back on in the future.

After working for two months as a design intern working in the studio a few days a week, I continued my work there, but as a Freelance Designer. I loved being able to mix a lot more illustration with this role, and got the chance to design children's plush toys, cushion cover designs, as well as graphics for online and branding publications.
