Featured Artist: Sophie Rees

Sophie Rees Illustration

With pen and hand in convergence Sophie creates creatures of fantasy.

Her work focuses on animals, narrative through story telling and nostalgia. Just graduated from UWTSD Sophie is a surface pattern designer and illustrator from small Vale in South Wales and is highly influenced by her childhood of growing up in the countryside. Surrounded with animals and nature she grew up to hold a deep connection to wildlife with pattern, which had become evident in her designs.

Sophie celebrates watercolour, linear lines and pattern within her work and enjoys creating bold and fresh compositions. Her diverse drawings and mark makings are unusual and detailed allowing the designs to be placed on a range of products with quirky and original outcomes ranging from greeting cards to lifestyle and home ware.

Since graduation Sophie is now developing her portfolio and gaining as much experience within promoting her work and in the industry as possible.
