Sonja Wimmer is an illustrator based in the German Alps. She studied and worked as a graphic designer in her hometown of Munich and in Brussels, before deciding to move to Barcelona and study illustration at the Llotja School of Art and Design. Sonja now works as a freelance illustrator for clients based all around the world, and her books have won multiple awards in the US. For inspiration, Sonja often ventures outdoors to draw – heading to the seaside or up into the mountains – but also finds that inspiration can come from simpler places, like the sideways glance of a passerby or the dregs of her coffee in a cup.
Illustration, for Sonja, presents a way to bring a little light into people’s lives: to move them, and make them laugh, reflect and dream. View Full Bio
