Sofie is passionate about travelling and documenting her view of the world through her art. She aspires to submerge herself as much as possible, studying languages and customs of the places she visits, trying to understand different cultures. 

This series of Noodle Nymphs started during her latest trip to Tokyo, where an experience at a ramen bar became about much more than just the food and served as the inspiration for this series.
