Born in Montreal, Sophie Benmouyal spent her childhood drawing and her teenage years creating her stories. After working for several years as a freelance graphic designer for various organizations and companies, she returned to her first love–fiction and illustration. Sophie is passionate about books and storytelling and has since illustrated six children’s books (three of which she also wrote). She is the author of a zero-waste column in Mes premiers J’aime Lire Québec and has been producing a documentary comic strip on Quebec’s native flowers for the Montreal Botanical Garden’s Flore Alors! magazine since 2021.
