Sophia Furman

My name is Sophia Furman, a New York-based illustrator-artist, as well as inveterate reader, and fan of cacti and matcha tea.

The journey started in St. Petersburg, Russia, where I was born and encouraged to draw every day. Since then, my work has been exhibited at the U.S. Capitol’s Cannon Tunnel, Boston University, Stamford Art Association, and Stamford ARTWALK. Now, I have done illustrations, designs, and web design for various companies, for authors, and have co-illustrated a science-themed children’s book for a nonprofit. My sketchbook is now part of a traveling exhibit through the Brooklyn Art Library, and has traveled 180 miles, so far. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and several cacti.
