Around the same time I learned to walk, I learned to draw. Both were laborious endeavors, but they also felt equally important. Like my movement expressed my body’s eagerness for discovering the world around me, the pens and the paper were expressions of my eagerness to discover the world within me. Growing up, I’ve done my best to maintain a curiosity for both and my work is often a blend of the two. I am a traditional artist, through and through. My main medium is ballpoint pen, and I like working with my hands and to feel the art grow from under my fingertips.
I started my art career as a tattoo artist in my late teens, and later moved on to scientific illustration and information design, which I have studied at Mälardalen University, Sweden. Furthermore, I have a Master’s degree in English literature. All of these elements can frequently be found in the work I do, in themes as well as style. I am constantly inspired by the complexities of life, the possibilities of nature and the deep roots of our shared consciousness.
I am open for commissions as well as selling my original artwork and prints. Feel free to contact me for any inquiries at custombysophy [@] gmail.com or visit my Etsy shop.
