Meet our Magnificent Makers
Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.
By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.
We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.Do you make things?

I'm Sofia, currently based in Lisbon, Portugal. I'm an animator most of the time, but I also do illustration and graphic design! I love creating funky animations with vibrant colors, textures, and a lot of movement. Sometimes I like to add some abstraction to my work and creating very busy and full animations. Most of my work is digital but I also like experimenting with stop motion using found objects to make animated collages.
I am a big KID. I only make things that make me and others smile. I've had a look at the drawings of the children and their is nothing that fills me with more joy than the innocent genius. I would love to get involved by being able to realise their drawings into reality. Please let me know if this would be possible.
I have worked with little inventors before, both with Katherine and Chelsea, and I would love to continue being involved in any way possible.
