About me
Hi, I’m Sophie. I’m a highly organised brand marketer and digital illustrator with an eye for detail, a flair for problem-solving, and a perfectionist mindset. I have a track record of helping deliver marketing campaigns, events and brand partnerships which fuse creativity with commerciality, for brands including Boden and Barbour. I’m a team player, personable and have a good sense of humour. I also specialise in digital illustration, with a figurative, contemporary style, and have a passion for editorial illustration. I am regularly working on illustration commissions, and have recently worked with the beauty brand Shiseido. I'm skilled in creating illustrations in vector and pixel formats using the Adobe Creative Suite and Procreate. You can visit my full portfolio at In my spare time, I can mostly be found exploring what London’s cultural scene has to offer - I love going to art exhibitions, the theatre and gigs. I also attend life-drawing classes once a week, which helps me to relax and hone in on my creative skills.

The colour palette I chose is reflective of the beautiful array of candy colours that run through the Jeneral store c

    Dance Like It's The 1950s (in your living room)I was inspired by 1950's dancing such as the Lindy Hop and West Coast Swing in this piece. I love to incorporate a sense of motion in my illustrations, so it's a personal project to continue to explore different dances.
