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.”
