Sandie Sonke – Designer

I am a professional illustrator who specializes in children's book illustration and hand lettering.


Hello! I am a Southern California native and published children's book illustrator. I love to create whimsical and colorful illustrations. Although I love working on all kinds of illustrations, I enjoy working children's books most of all. I have worked with traditional publishers and self publishers. I am passionate about what I do and always bring my best to every project. In addition to being a freelance illustrator, I am a mom to two sweet and silly kids who inspire me daily.

Some lovely people I have recently worked with:
Oxford University Press, Familius Publishing, Clearfork Publishing, Usborne Publishing, The Webster, and Hopping On A Rainbow.
Picture Books
  • Colorado Book Award 2019 Winner
  • BA Studio Art - Cal State University Fullerton
