She has followed a meandering path to find her way to a career in illustration and she is overjoyed to share her love of nature through painting. Watercolor is Sophie's muse and she loves its unpredictable, unforgiving qualities; it is her daily joy to harness the wildness of the medium and reveal its delicacy and strength.
