 Artist | Art Director | Production Designer | Director



Multi-disciplinary and internationally exhibited Artist, Art Director, Production Designer, and Director living and working in Manchester, UK. 

With a diverse career, and a signature aesthetic, her work spans everything from art direction, production design, photography, videography, directing, editing, motion graphics & post-production. Sophie's working practice combines her passions of design, music & filmmaking. 


As the CO of The Afternoon LTD, Sophie leads a creative design studio that licenses artwork & designs interior and exterior worlds for homes, films and TV. Providing creative direction for productions across commercials, film, music promos and fashion campaigns. (click here to see design work)


Specialising in Artistic Direction, Sophie excels in crafting distinctive and captivating visual identities for bands and solo musicians. Working for a time as an A&R rep, she went on to foster new talent in the Manchester music scene, offering a comprehensive suite of services, ranging from music video production and press kit creation to photography and live session recordings. Sophie extends her support to up-and-coming gigs and events, facilitating connections and opportunities for new talent, collaborating with local bands and music venues, and championing emerging artists and independent music scenes.


Alongside her commercial work, Sophie is a multi-disciplinary, experimental visual artist specialising in creating immersive video art. Characterised by bright mesmeric hues and melancholic figure expressions, her work blurs the lines between memory and hallucination. 


The cinematic landscape is one of the things at the forefront of her work, visually and thematically: Road trips, death, escapism, dualism and visuals incorporate and intertwine lived experiences with filmic hyperrealities. 

Harnessing new techniques and traditional methods, Sophie's work spans everything from AI, to analogue video synths, paint, photography to 16mm film. 

Tapped by THE DOUBLE NEGATIVE as 'one to watch' and one of the Northwest's top Fine Art graduates.
