Yellow Dress Day, published in 2012, was Sophie's first published picture book. Since then she has illustrated Indigo Solves the Pzuzle and is currently working on a new picture book scheduled for release in 2014.
As a work experience student, Sophie’s exceptional artistic talents were quickly discovered by New Frontier Publishing. She is about to begin her studies at Sydney University.
