Sophia’s Illustrations


Sophia Shaw a regular at our events, a freelance illustrator based near the beautiful city of Chester on the Shropshire Union canal aboard 42ft narrowboat ‘Roanoke’ with partner Andrew and little rescue dog, John. 

A love of travel, nature and beautiful gardens very much inspires Sophia’s work, from map-making to her unique artist greeting cards and commissioned portraits, she loves to bring colour and an element of story-telling to her work. 

Working from her off-grid recycled shed, sustainability has always been important. Any printed work is outsourced as locally as possible, cardstocks used are always recycled and her greeting cards are sold plastic-free. Sophia also uses her skills to fundraise for local wildlife organisations.   You can also find her work – ​Place for the Art, Northgate Street (next to Boots)
