Hi, my name is Sophie Margolin. I am 23 years old. I was born in Houston, Texas and currently I'm living in Ridgewood, Queens. I have been living in New York for about five years. From 2015 to 2019 I attended the School of Visual Arts. I graduated with a BFA in Illustration.
My art is comprised of two main categories: emotional release, and escape into my fantasy world. The two collide sometimes but I see them generally as separate places... reality (expressing and explaining my emotions and personal experiences) and fantasy (escape from myself and reality, using recurring characters and fantasy concepts as comfort).
I work almost exclusively with traditional media. My favorites are gouache, graphite, colored pencil, and wax pastel. I love silkscreen printing and ceramics, too, when I have access to them.
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.
