Hello there!

I’m Sophy, I am an illustrator, pet portraitist & art tutor based in Durham City, U.K. with my Boston Terrier Claude. He inspires me everyday with his infectious enthusiasm for life. I began keeping a visual diary of our life together, which can be found on Instagram @sophynixon

I am completely obsessed with dogs! I love pets, wildlife & nature which inspires my illustrated gifts which I sell in my etsy shop.

As well as drawing Claude, I also love drawing other people’s pets. Check out my sketch-a-pet page to order your very own custom drawing of your fur baby! I also draw birds and reptiles too… and other hairless creatures, basically anything except eight legged dudies!

You can catch up with current projects & events with me and Claude here @sophynixon
