Sonja loves painting pictures and telling stories. After studying and working some years as a graphic designer in her hometown of Munich, and Brussels, she decided to pack her suitcase and move to Barcelona to study Illustration at the “Llotja” Arts and Crafts School. Since then she lives between brushes and all kinds of wonderful tales, working as freelance illustrator around the world. Over the last years various of her books have been awarded in the United States. The Journey of The Captain Scaredy Cat is her first book with NubeOcho Ediciones. Her book Bogo, the Fox Who Wanted Everything is a Junior Library Guild Selection.
