Sophia knows she could never solve all the problems in the world using design, but she tries to actively promote a world with more love for animals and plants. By selecting her material carefully, Sophia hopes not only to share her passion with the world, but also to do this in a sustainable way. That's why her bags, for example, are made from 100% ecological and organic cotton.

 

Sophia loves animals and nature, colors and patterns. She uses visual storytelling to raise awareness about global sustainability challenges. Through her work, she hopes to introduce people to the world’s beautiful, happy, and innocent organisms.

 

Her passion is to visualize her stories, ideas and thoughts. By using form, color and movement, she can shape and create the scenarios from her mind.

 

She visualizes her way of seeing things, so everyone can experience them with her. She likes it when she can give people a certain happy feeling after they have seen her work. That's why she will always keep doing what she loves: combining and processing the impulses of the world in different ways using diverse techniques to create something special.
