"I want to capture places as people remember them, because the world changes so fast"

Growing up, Sophie was always fascinated by how we get where we are going. She's moved all over the midwest, from West Lafayette, Indiana to Chicago, to Duluth, Minnesota and Madison, Wisconsin. Each place she's lived she loved exploring neighborhoods, discovering new ways to get around town, and experiencing different lifestyles. She began drawing maps in 2019 as a way to further explore places she was either familiar with or totally new to, without the hassell of travel! Eventually she was making maps for friends and family and launched Maps by Sophie in 2020. Using just pencil and pen, her intricate maps capture moments in time in a rapidly changing world.
