Hello there!

I’m Sophy, I am an illustrator, pet portraitist & art tutor based in Durham City, U.K. where I live with my dog, Claude. Inspired by his infectious enthusiasm for life, I began keeping a visual diary of our life together, shared through our Instagram page  @sophynixon

I love drawing pets, wildlife & nature which inspire my illustrated gifts which I sell through 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! 

Catch up with me and Claude here @sophynixon
