"Her visual art is like looking into a distorted mirror: portraits of human beings that appear at once beautiful, grotesque, and familiar. Using the technique of blind contouring – a technique when the artist draws a subject without looking at the paper or her hand – Sophie’s portraits capture the essence of her subject while transforming their image into something completely new and fresh, with a dash of Cubist Picasso." - Flaunt Magazine
