Sophie C'est la Vie transfers images of innocent and raw beauty into visual allegories balanced with softness and occasional subtle darkness. Pulling from organic references as well as hints of whimsical satire, her current work engages the individual and inspires them to look deeper into the subject matter and see more than what immediately meets the eye. In her tattoo work she emphasizes the balance between classic traditional style and illustrative, realistic details. She specializes in color work in addition to working in black and grey.
Sophie draws her inspiration from the ever changing movement in life and creative forms around her. In her artwork and tattoos she has found continual inspiration in the form of art created from paper. Simple, yet refined, classic yet original. She uses multiple mediums in creating these visual narratives balancing paint, collage, ink and as of late, work with paper in her artwork.
A native Texan, she currently resides and works as an artist and a tattooer at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn, New York.
