Hello there! Olá! I'm Sofia, a Portuguese illustrator who loves drawing young characters amidst whimsical and colorful storytelling, represented by the Bright Agency. Using a mix of both traditional and digital mediums, besides illustrating for children's books and other #kidlit projects, I also create sweet and colorful artwork for greetings & gift, surface pattern, apparel and games (e.g. puzzles).
My passion for illustration goes all the way back to my childhood years when my enthusiastic urge to create and doodle was nurtured by family and educators since kindergarten, mostly through drawing, painting and collage. Around 3-5 years old I had a phase where the white walls of our house were my main canvas of choice (my best work was made at godly hours of the morning when everyone was still asleep, ahah)! Most of my inspiration comes from these precious years and my now everyday life, so you could say it originates from the imaginary and the ordinary.
