Sophie Downes

Sophie Downes has a passion for conversational, playful and colourful textiles. She describes herself as a scribbler, sewer and storyteller. Through illustration, paper craft and photography, she aims to story-tell and generate feel-good, 'happy' designs.

Sophie studied textile design at The Glasgow School of Art and graduated with a first-class degree. She is a multi-disciplinary creator. During her last two years at university, she specialised in embroidery and combined this with digital print to create her graduate collection.
She started to sell illustrations during lockdown in 2020. At first, she saw it as a hobby to keep her busy; however, she quickly realised how happy creating, developing and selling her own work made her. And we’re glad she did.
