Born and raised in rural Lincolnshire, Sophie developed a love for the countryside which never left her. In 1994, Sophie graduated with a first class honours degree in graphic art and design, with a specialism in illustration. Two years later, she showed her first illustrations at the Country Living Fair in London, which proved so popular that they secured her presence at Country Living Events ever since.
Sophie Allport is an independent, family-owned, family-run business. With Sophie and her brother Jem at the helm, the pair complement each other perfectly - with Jem’s business acumen providing a platform for Sophie to focus purely on the illustration and product design that powers the brand’s popularity.
