Sofie is an illustrator, who creates playful and colourful illustrations with quirky diverse characters.
As a child, she travelled to Neverland with Peter Pan, had a few scary encounters on Paul van Loon’s “Horror Bus” and went on great adventures with Roald Dahl. These stories fuelled her passion for drawing. Sofie graduated as a graphic designer and while working in the creative field, she realised that she really enjoyed creating artwork. So she decided to pursue a career in illustration and she is working on her own as a full-time freelance illustrator ever since.
Sofie specialises in the children’s publishing industry and has had the privilege to work with publishers from all over the world. She works digitally, with her Wacom tablet and ipad as her favourite tools of choice. She has learned a lot from endless hours of practice behind her desk and following the inspiring journey of fellow illustrators. You can find her illustrations in books and magazines, as stickers, on paper goods and toys.
When Sofie is not working in the studio, you will probably find her at the backyard jungle pond getting inspiration, reading a book or sipping on a coffee. Sofie is a big lover of nature, early summer mornings, all things cryptozoological & creepy, flannel, being self-employed, snow, freedom, big messy hair, National & wildlife Parks, western movies, Christmas and road trip adventures (Let’s see the world!).
Sofie lives in a small town in Belgium with her boyfriend and a fluffy pack of animals.
