Hi, my name is Sophie Margolin. I am 25 years old. I was born in Houston, Texas and currently I'm living in Brooklyn. From 2015 to 2019 I attended the School of Visual Arts. I graduated with a BFA in Illustration.
My art is an emotional release, a method of self-soothing. I struggle with mental illness, namely Borderline Personality Disorder, and the primary way I deal with intense emotional pain is through drawing pictures. I also make comics about my mental health experience (please go to my Instagram to view those).
I work almost exclusively with traditional media. My favorites are gouache, graphite, colored pencil, and wax pastel.
Instagram is where I post my art most frequently so please check that out for the majority of my art. I am always open for commissions and freelance work.
