Features & Publications

Jaime Loomis, Back East Brewing Co. Bloomfield, CT.

“We always envisioned a warm, creative atmosphere for our newer 2,500 sq ft tap room. We were so impressed by Sophie’s ability to blend art and beauty in a public space. Her artistic vision surpassed our expectations, turning the formerly blank wall into a vibrant look into the brewing process. The mural has seamlessly become an integral part of the Back East atmosphere and customer experience. Now, the previously bleak wall serves as a conversation piece that allows us to immerse our customers in the brewing culture, creating a welcoming and fun vibe that enhances their overall experience!”

Doms Broad St Eatery.

Windsor, CT.

I often hear guests talking about it, and see them taking pictures of it, and taking selfies with it! Windsor prides itself on being the first town of Connecticut and the way Sophie captured the charm of our small town is magical! Thank you Sophie for the hard work and dedication."

Samantha Rumore, Lucky Dog Refuge.

Stamford, CT.

“We gave her photos of our long-term dogs who were having a hard time finding their forever homes (left to right Katy, Elle, Emmie, Zero, Mardi) and she gave us an incredible design. Sophie put together a mood board with examples of art styles and we loved the idea of dogs in sunglasses in a beachy sunset setting. She was so open to feedback and edits and ultimately everyone loved the final product.” Rumore says the best part of the process was that three of these long-term dogs–Katy, Emmie, and Zero–found new homes after being included in the mural.
