Sophie – or simply Ofi – is a Karlsruhe, Germany based female illustrator and artist. She can’t remember a time of her thirty years‘ existence when she wasn’t creating anything.Mostly self-taught. Whether it’s drawing, painting, animating, doing pottery, upcycling furniture or simply (spray) painting all her surroundings in the brightest colors: Sophie's hands are always busy. Her work is mostly inspired by daily life, feminism and mental health topics. The happy and joyful associated colors she prefers to use provide an unexpected contrast to the seldom smiling characters – usually female-leads. When asked about the reasons for her characters’ grumpiness, Sophie says: "Actually, we don’t know if they are in a bad mood – maybe they are just sick of people/society expecting them to smile and look nice all the time".
