Sophia was born and raised in Southern California. She’s always had a love for art drawing inspiration anywhere from comics to books to magazines to movies.
Being a soft-spoken individual, art has helped her throughout her life to express herself. Many of her art pieces and characters are an extension of who she is and allows her to be herself. She chose this art form, to breathe life into something that has none, to find herself and lose herself, to exist in a world of silence, to evoke a feeling in others to know themselves.
Moved by early Disney films, she decided to take the path to become a traditional 2d animator at the Laguna College of Art and Design. Partly through her studies, she found that she also had a passion for visual development and illustration. Since graduating in 2019, she has had the pleasure of working in both illustration and animation, with companies such as Black Women Animate, HULU, and 9story Media.
