Sophie Ladame

Inspired by family trips and voyages under sail in the Pacific and the Antilles, Sophie Ladame sketches the islands, and recycles pigments and papers to give a “local” feeling to her watercolours. Everyday life, places, and people encountered are her favourite topics, and feature in her first travel diary L’île de la Réunion published by Gallimard in October 2001. The Saint-Denis Natural History Museum of la Réunion mounted an exhibition of her watercolours in November 2001.
Sophie Ladame was born in Paris in 1974. She studied the art of illustration at Axe Sud, Marseilles. She is now based in Paris and works for a number of international press and advertising agencies.
