Hi! I’m Sophia van Hees, an artist, sewing teacher, and ice-cream enthusiast. Originally from Brisbane, Australia, I currently live between the mountains and the ocean in Vancouver, Canada.
My style combines flat bold shapes, overlaid with delicate hand-drawn details, to create fun yet elegant designs. The name ‘Brave Snail Designs’ reflects my commitment to slow living and courageous creativity, mixed with a dash of whimsy.
My artwork is available to buy and license and I welcome commissions, collaborations, and freelance work.
