Sophy Tuttle

painting, drawing

As a trained illustrator, I have an underlying drive in all of my work to tell a story and create interesting and compelling characters. I started out doing this through small, intimate, pen & ink drawings, but over the past few years have progressed to large canvasses and murals.

I draw much of my inspiration from nature and animals, particularly birds and mythical creatures. My most recent work focuses on the environment and the challenges facing our society today. The goal of this work is to evoke sympathy and instill a shared sense of interest and hopefully activism.
