Creative

A medley of creative endeavors

Trained in fine art and architecture, creative arts has always made its way into everything I do. I draw, paint, sketch, and experiment with mixed media work. I also dabble in digital illustration and animation.

FLOWER GIRL SERIES

Art & Illustration

The Flower Girl Series is a personal passion project made for Instagram. Inspired by whimsical summer flowers and color-changing fall foliage, I played with the idea of nature-inspired gowns, giving life to fashion illustrations. To see more works, check out this blog post or search #sophiaplayswithflowers.

"COMPOSE VS COMPRISE"

Stop Motion Animation

I produced, filmed, and edited a stop motion video explaining a "common confusable," the words compose versus comprise, using paper cutouts as engaging visuals. This video was made for Dictionary.com. Click on screencap to watch the video.
