About Sophie

Portrait by Nadav Kander

Sophie comes from an art background, with a first class honours degree in Special Effects prosthetics for film and TV. She worked as a sculptor for 8 years at one of the UK’s leading prosthetic providers, making realistic, bespoke prosthetics for amputees. In her spare time she made more experimental art work in this medium before setting up her own studio and launching the Alternative Limb Project.

Sophie now works as a specialist consultant and works alongside prosthetists to produce realistic-looking artificial limbs as well as more imaginative limbs with direct input from the client to reflect their interests and personality.
