When she was 8 years old, her family moved to France. While attending high school there, her sketchbook was chosen to represent Enid Coleslaw’s art in the popular film Ghost World.

She’s also contributed to Fantagraphics new anthology of up-and-coming artists, MOME, and her original art is for sale on her family’s website. In addition to her comics, Sophie has taught English to French students, gone to circus school, and worked in a comic book store.
