Sophia Shaw

Artist & Tea Drinker

Sophia is a freelance illustrator based near the beautiful city of Chester on the Shropshire Union canal aboard 42ft narrowboat 'Roanoke' with partner Andrew and little rescue dog, John.

A love of travel, nature and beautiful old buildings very much inspires Sophia's work, from map-making to her unique paintings and commissioned pieces, she loves to bring colour and an element of story-telling to her work.

Lucky enough to have found a mooring for Roanoke in the countryside, Sophia works from a tiny studio-shed built from recycled materials.
