Sophie Cangelosi

(b. 1993) is a multi-faceted visual artist with experience in illustration, graphic design, hand lettering, and mural installation. Sophie's practice is a balance of personal and commercial projects. She graduated from Maine College of Art with her BFA in Illustration in 2016. In her personal work, Sophie often explores themes of perception, impermanence, femininity, inner-life, and identity. She executes these themes using graphic, figurative, and abstract forms. Sophie has exhibited her work all over the US.  When she isn't working, she can likely be found playing with 35mm film, nerding out over living wine, or spending quality time by the ocean.
