Sophie Kamlish is an illustrator, animator and 3-time Paralympic athlete based in Bath and Winnipeg.
She graduated from Kingston University in 2019 with a degree in Illustration and Animation.
Sophie has been obsessed with drawing from the start. She always has a pen on her - no napkin is safe. And given she despised every subject at school except Art, it came as no surprise to anyone that this is where she ended up.
She's illustrated for the BBC, and animated for both Channel 4 and The Royal Opera House. And in 2019, her final year animation was nominated for the London International Animation Festival - in which she discusses the pros and cons of life as an amputee.
Becoming an elite athlete was perhaps a little less predictable.
Competing for Great Britain in the 100m aged just 16 was certainly a shock - even to Sophie herself, as she'd never considered herself particularly sporty. But it's now been a huge part of her life for over a decade.
Life as an athlete has taken her all over the world - her pencil case firmly packed alongside her prosthetic running blade.
Sophie Kamlish lives between Canada and the UK, training mostly in Winnipeg but regularly coming home to Bath. She hates walking up the hills, but is at least glad it isn't minus 30°C.
Sophie's now represented by The Catchpole Agency.
