Sofia Zubi is an artist, illustrator, and children’s author currently based in New Jersey.

Since graduating from Pratt Institute, New York in 2017, the subject of much of her work has been both personal and symbolic, inspired by actual experiences and dreams. Sofia works on both large scale paintings and small watercolor drawings, where symbolism is woven throughout sophisticated layers of organic, figurative and geometric forms. Each form is as an illustrative insight into human nature. Although predominantly a painter, Sofia recently took this last year to focus on her first children’s novel, Sawdust, about a Princess who escapes her kingdom to join the circus. Sawdust, will be published in 2020.
