People Have Said...


“What Sophie has been able to do so well in her work is make subjects completely relatable. Though this particular work is grounded in her own feelings surrounding her experience, she poses a question that opens the piece up entirely.”

- It’s Nice That


“Not to mention insightful talks from four emerging London-based artists, Lilian Nejatpour, Eldon Somers, Sophie Rawlingson and Alexander Ikhide, on what it’s like surviving in today’s tough art climate.”

- Nando’s


“With Ellie’s lust for self-publication and Sophie’s creativity, they’ve successfully created an outlet for women to rant about their complicated relationships with their bodies in The Peach Diaries.”

PS...


Sophie used to illustrate under the alias ‘All My Plants Are Dead’, but changed to work under her own name in August 2019. All the work completed on this site has always been done entirely by Sophie, and the name change better supports this narrative.

Sophie’s side project ‘The PEACH Diaries’ is in collaboration with her sister Ellie. It is a separate entity to Sophie as an Illustrator, and you can learn more about that here :-)
