My Story

Sophie Furman Bookstore Shelfie 4.23 copy.png

Why, hello there! My name is Sophie (she/they) and I am a Brooklyn-based illustrator, for children's books and companies and publications. I love all things inclusive, geeky, gorgeous. I am also a micro-influencer on Instagram, and am in love with everything social media. In my free time, I love to walk my very own very floofy squishy, Cookie, and am a dedicated bubble tea drinker, and fan of and reader of all the books to my baby nephews Logan and Alex. ​

I seek to strive to champion marginalized communities in my work. I went from working for national nonprofits and local elementary schools, to working on making today's illustrations more inclusive!

One of my accomplishments is co-illustrating an inclusive STEM children's book about a girl-inventor for a nonprofit. My artworks have traveled a long way, having been displayed at the U.S. Capitol's Cannon Tunnel, a Boston University solo show, Stamford Art Association as well as Stamford ARTWALK, and also in a traveling exhibit that traveled 180 miles, to Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, and Toronto, ON, among others.
