Sophie Brabbins is a happy, hard working illustrator and surface pattern designer. Born and raised in Yorkshire, her designs are inspired by the beautiful countryside surroundings she grew up in. Sophie is extremely passionate about creating beautiful watercolour illustrations and surface pattern designs. All of her work is carefully drawn and painted with great consideration of tone and shade. Her expressive saturated colour palettes feel life like and modern, whilst her wildlife paintings almost threaten to walk off the page. Inspired by quirky inanimate objects, animals, nature and all things miniature, her work is characterised by both detailed and loose watercolour painting and a playful use of colour and composition. She combines traditional hand drawn and painted techniques with modern digital processes to create classically beautiful and contemporary designs applicable to all markets.
