Check out my recent work

My work includes quite a few areas, from full scale mural lettering to cartoon series for instagram, to cheeky satire for sale as prints/stickers. It's always bright, usually funny (my Mum thinks so) and constantly expanding.

Digital and Hand Lettering Samples

Besides her skills with brush pens on paper, Sophie also creates a wide variety of styles of digital lettering using her iPad pro. These are often favourite quotes, satirical sayings or poems which she brings her unique flavour of brush lettering and design to. These all feature on her instagram, and are often the basis for cards, prints and other commissioned work. Sophie recently provided the logo lettering for new gospel folk duo Land and Salt   

She has provided digital artwork and lettering for the Christian resource company Go Teach and the artwork for the EasterMeansHope.com campaign for Speak Life
