Sophie worked in advertising and design before studying for a BA Hons degree in Illustration and Animation at Kingston University, graduating in 2013. Her final project, The Lonely Giant, was Highly Commended in the Macmillan Prize.
Her publisher, Walker Books, said:
From an incredible new picture book talent comes a tender story of a giant who learns to value the world around him. A beautifully illustrated environmental fable for modern times.
Sophie lives in London with her husband and two children. She adores drawing and illustration. She loves nothing better than to invent characters and create stories (preferably with a large mug of tea beside her!).
The Lonely Giant is her debut picture book and was published in August 2016 by Walker Books.
